The annual celebration of Islam, hosted by Edinburgh Central Mosque as part of Edinburgh Festival Fringe is back.
At the Festival, the doors of the Mosque are open to everyone, old or young, with any faith or none, to discover and learn about Islam through an exhibition, guided tours, talks and workshops. The Festival aims to remove the barrier between people and Islam, and to create an opportunity of interaction and mutual understanding.
This year’s highlights include:
Saturday 17th August 2019
