Muslims and non-Muslims alike are being invited to enjoy free food and drink in Plymouth in an event to mark the holy month of Ramadan.

Ramadan Tent is an award winning student-led project which aims to bring together the community.

During Ramadan Muslims fast between dawn and sunset and the organisers of Ramadan Tent are inviting everyone, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, to join them for free food and drink to break the fast on Friday.

Depending on the weather the event will take place between 8.45pm and 10.30pm in either Drake’s Place or the large marquee next to the Rolle Building on the main campus at Plymouth University.

A variety of cuisines will be on offer, donated by local businesses including Ganges and Gurkha, CostLess, Tasty Food Express, Aroma Woodfire Pizza, Mesopotamia, India Express and The Curry King. Any leftover food will be donated to the city’s homeless shelters.

One of the organisers of the Ramadan Tent event in Plymouth is dental student Karishma Chouglay who said: “This is a super opportunity for everyone in the community to come together, get to know each other and share in some lively conversation and excellent food. Everyone is welcome regardless of who they are, where they come from or what they believe.”
