Next Sunday, 18th February, Eccles Mosque is holding a free open day for anyone in the Salford community who wishes to know more about what happens inside the well known building.
"We want to make this the most effective open day in the whole of the UK" says Tahir Mahmood, senior volunteer with Eccles Mosque Community Engagement "We invite you to come and discover a wonderful mix of different cultures, traditions and experiences of the Eccles Mosque community.
"It's a great opportunity to meet the Muslim community and learn more about their amazing contributions today and throughout history" he adds "And to celebrate and facilitate the hand of friendship by everyone, to break down unnecessary barriers and fears - and at the same time bring the best out of the Mosque and its community."
There will be guided tours of the Mosque, and a range of activities, from henna painting, to Arabic calligraphy, to children's face painting, arts and crafts and traditional food.
The event is hosted by the Eccles and Salford Islamic Society as part of the national #VisitMyMosqueDay.
