Over 2,000 members of Oxfordshire’s Muslim community flocked to the Kassam Stadium to mark Eid Al Adha. The event included three prayer sessions with entertainment such as bouncy castles for children.

Dr Hojjat Ramzy, the event’s organiser, said: “It is a celebration which we would like to share with Christianity and Judaism, because it is the prophet Ibrahim we have in common.”

He believes that it has the potential to become even bigger in Oxfordshire, adding: “We will be talking to other mosques to see if they can join us for next year’s celebration – we hope for 5000 people.”
