📣 GLMCC Eid Al Adha Announcement
GLMCC will not be holding the annual Celebrate Eid event in Small Heath Park. After consultation with Birmingham City Council officials and Public Health Birmingham, the event which attracts an annual attendance of up to 60,000 people could pose significant risks to the public due to rising Covid-19 infections.
Prayers on the day will be performed inside the mosque this year, as we did for Eid Al Fitr a couple of months ago.
Four separate congregational prayers have been arranged, starting from 7:00am through to 10:00am. Following the latest government guidance, social distancing will not be required and masks will no longer be mandatory (but will be recommended to be worn in highly populated areas indoors).
Alhamdulillah, in partnership with Edgbaston Cricket Ground, we are also pleased to be facilitating a special Eid prayer at the Colts Ground situated within the compound of Edgbaston Stadium (entrance gate E11) Prayer will be held at 8.30am with arrival starting at 8.00am. Numbers will be strictly limited to 500 attendees and registration to attend will be required using our prayer booking app, which can be downloaded here: Android or iOS.
Registrations will be open from 6pm on Friday 16th July.
