WHAT IS IFTAR?
During the month of Ramadan, Muslim’s around the world will fast from dawn until sunset. As dusk falls, families and communities gather together for Iftar, the evening meal when the fast is broken with a special feast.

In honour of this tradition, on Wednesday 22nd May, we’re inviting you to join us for yet another Dishoom Iftar feast from 8pm under West Handyside Canopy (near Dishoom King’s Cross).

It’ll be a brilliant evening in which all guests (whether fasting or not) will gather at long banquet tables to break fast together, share stories and celebrate their differences.

THE MONTH OF GIVING
As giving is very much at the heart of Ramadan, we’ll make a ‘zakat’ (charity donation) of the full ticket price (£12pp) to Akshaya Patra – a charity working towards eradicating childhood hunger as a barrier to education in India. £12 can cover the cost of a child in India’s school lunches for more than a year, so by joining us, you’re singlehandedly donating a year’s worth of lunches to a child that would otherwise go hungry.

WHAT TO EXPECT
At sunset, guests will be welcomed with an enchanting Qanun player, before gathering around long banquet tables. The Call to Prayer – lead by the brilliant Hassen Rasool – will echo sweetly across the canopy before everyone breaks their fast with a hearty spread of traditional Iftar dishes. It’s going to be seriously good!

(All guests are welcome to observe prayers before or after breaking their fast – there’ll be dedicated space to do so.)

HOW TO GET INVOLVED
Whilst we’ll be celebrating in a traditional way, we’re welcoming people of all ages, religions and persuasions to come and break fast with us.

In the meantime, we wish Ramadan Mubarak to you all.
