EVENT: Eid Dinner at Maroush
Date: 7th July, 2016 Time: 07:30 pm - 11:00 pm
The Association held its Eid Dinner at Maroush Gardens, the Lebanese restaurant in London's West End, on 7 July.
We always hold a holiday party around this time of year. It usually takes the form of a Ramadan Iftar, but with Ramadan now falling in the middle of summer (with the result that Iftars cannot start until very late, since Muslims break their fast at sunset), this year's event was an Eid Party, coinciding with Eid el-Fitr, the holiday that follows the ending of Ramadan.
One hundred and twenty guests attended the party, which was sponsored by Bank ABC, National Bank of Kuwait International and QIB (UK). In addition to the sponsors, four other banks took full tables.
Photographs from the party can be seen on the 'Gallery' section of this website.
