Stratford’s premier Halal steakhouse, HS&Co, is proud to be participating in this year’s highly anticipated ‘Eid in the Square’ event. The popular restaurant will be providing luxury burgers and exotic beverages to thousands of Londoners on what promises to be a day to remember.
The annual event will take place on Sunday 2nd July, from noon till 6pm, in the heart of the UK’s capital at the famous Trafalgar Square. The celebration will attract London’s vibrant community and give visitors a chance to come and enjoy time together following the long fasts of Ramadan.
London has endured a harrowing period in recent weeks following multiple terrorist attacks along with the tragic Grenfell Tower fire, however, the spirit of the city has shone through with communities standing together and providing those affected with inspiring levels of support.
Eid in the Square, which is heavily supported by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, will provide another opportunity for Londoners to show solidarity and togetherness and to demonstrate the true values of British Muslims and of the city on the whole.
Speaking to the Evening Standard, Khan explained: “Throughout Ramadan, I’ve joined Londoners from all faiths and backgrounds to break my fast at Iftars across our city. This is what the holy month is all about – sharing time with others and showing empathy for one another.
“Eid is a time to come together with friends, family and loved ones. Next Sunday, thousands of Londoners will join the capital’s Muslim community at the Eid Festival in Trafalgar Square.”
Now in its 12th year, the event has cemented itself at the heart of London tradition. This year’s event will include a variety of live music and performances that will illustrate the spirit of London’s thriving Muslim community. The Mayor of London will also be on hand to make a speech.
HS&Co co-founder and Great British Halal Chef, Hamza, added: “HS&Co is very proud to be part of such a fantastic event and I would like to echo the Mayor of London’s sentiments. This is an opportunity for Muslims to stand as one with the rest of this wonderful city that is home to so many.
“We are looking forward to joining thousands in demonstrating the solidarity and togetherness that is so important within our culture.”
HS&Co will run two enticing stalls. The food stall will provide our famous Proper Cheese Burger whilst French fries will be available for those looking for a lighter bite. HS&Co’s Eid Special will offer a mouth-watering luxury burger, fries and a soft drink for just £9.50. Our exotic bar will also provide a taste of the sun with mocktails, such as minty mojitos and kiwi coolers available among others as well as more traditional soft drinks.
Activities at Eid in the Square will include face-painting, calligraphy, henna and story-telling activities, while a number of craft stalls will also be in attendance. The event also boasts a global food market with Turkish, Egyptian, Lebanese and Malaysian cuisine on offer amongst others.
