AN EID festival is being staged in Keighley.

A wide range of free entertainment and other attractions is lined up for the event, in Cliffe Castle Park.

The celebration – which takes place next Saturday (July 15), between noon and 4pm – is being organised by Safeguarding Through Communities, and funded by Keighley Town Council.

Popular DJ Saj Cobra, a hit on YouTube, will perform. And there will be appearances from singer Gubi Sandhu and rising talent YK as part of a packed programme, which organisers promise will offer something for everyone.

A spokesperson says: "We are excited to also have talented Dhol drummers, who will captivate audiences with their powerful beats and mesmerising rhythms and keep the energy high throughout the event.

"Marshalls Amusements will be offering free access to its kids' bungee trampoline, swing ride and inflatable activity centre. And for those seeking a different type of fun, Go Wild Outdoors will introduce soft archery, an activity for all ages.

"There will be a tug of war and races, and a bubble station for the little ones.

"The festival is also an opportunity to delve into artistic and cultural expression. An arts and crafts station will provide a platform for creativity, with activities such as mask and bracelet making, painting and mini kite crafting. Free henna stalls and face painting will also be on offer, adding a splash of colour to the event.

"There will be a real treat for food lovers too, with a selection of traditional Asian dishes on offer – plus there will be a free chocolate fountain and a special ice cream cart from the Cliffe Castle cafe."

Bradford Council's youth service will have a stall, and West Yorkshire Police will be in attendance with one of their vehicles on display and children's uniforms available for young visitors to try on.

Councillor Abdul Shohid, chair of Keighley Town Council's events and community action committee, says: "I am excited to see the culmination of all the hard work and dedication that has been put in by the organisers, Safeguarding Through Communities, to bring this fantastic event to life.

"The summer Eid festival promises to be an unforgettable experience for everyone involved, filled with joy and excitement.

"Everybody is invited to join in this grand celebration, with free fun, engaging activities, delicious food and uplifting entertainment.

"Keighley Town Council extends its warmest wishes to all attendees."
