“It’s all about bringing communities together and raising awareness about mental health”
Restore and The People’s Fair are hosting an Eid Street Party for hundreds in Manzil Way on Saturday 8th June! Our family funday will be packed with lots of stalls, live music, and a food court with Fresh BBQ and Halal Food. We’ll have face painting and Henna, and Restore’s beautiful gardens to relax in!
Hundred of people are expected to support a community festival to celebrate the end of Ramadan for fasting Muslims and raise awareness about mental health in the wider community. The People’s Fair organises celebrations of Eid with the aim of bringing communities together and the Eid Street Party will be the fourth event organised with Restore in the last twelve months, following The People’s Fair in Florence Park in June 2018, Eid al-Adha in August 2018, and an event at the Asian Cultural Centre in March 2019 to promote International Women’s Day and mental health.
Taking place at Restore’s Manzil Way recovery groups just a few hundred metres from the city’s largest mosque, Central Mosque, the event is also supported by the Asian Cultural Centre, Confluence, Oxford Hindu Temple, and part-funded by the Oxfordshire Community Foundation.
The event will run from 11am until 5pm in Manzil way, and is free to all. The event will help to raise money for mental health recovery and Restore and Anneliese Dodds MP will be attending along city and county councillors.

Mental ill health can affect everyone, but everyone affected can and does recover. This event is all about bringing communities together and raising awareness about mental health.”
