The British Muslim Heritage Centre (BMHC) was delighted to once again host a family and community event on a huge scale. The rich and diverse community of Manchester was reflected in the people who attended in their thousands over the weekend. The event brought communities together regardless of faith, race and background. The festival was held over two days this year and was featured on BBC North West. The family weekend took place on Saturday 17th August and Sunday 18th August 2013, where we hosted over 4,000 people. Special guests included The Lord Mayor of Manchester and the Greater Manchester Police and Crime Commissioner, Tony Lloyd.
The programme included an exciting array of traditional performances by local and national artists, including a ‘Duff’ performance & workshops. The family friendly event featured a family tent with workshops,
activities and henna, stalls, a fantastic family funfair, and halal food stations where people experienced a variety of food. The Sunday highlight was a static educational bird of prey display.
