Halal Food Festival set for Morningside Arena in Leicester

By Samuel Gill

This Summer will see a Halal Food Festival take place at Morningside Arena, Leicester, on Sunday, June 21.

Taking place at the home of British Basketball League team Leicester Riders, organisers say it will boast live cooking demos, chefs and special guests, unique food items, as well as free entry for under-10s.

As described on their event page, they are inviting all Halal foodies to get involved in this event, which comes to Leicester for the first time.

It is part of a string of events that Morningside Arena is putting on alongside the basketball and previously the darts, with sports events such as the Weber Cup and Championship League Snooker as well as concerts such as Indian Idol.

Fergus Garner works for both the arena and with the basketball team so sees both sides to the growing arena complex in Charter Street, which since opening has attracted more and more big names to get involved and start networking.

“I really enjoy it, it’s great to have a variety in what you do and bringing in all the events means there is always something different. For example we had the Riders game on Friday night and straight after the game we had a wedding fair the next day,” said Mr Garner.

He continued: “I think it’s really good for us to have different events for different kinds of cultural groups such as Indian Idol and the Halal Food Festival, which bring in a lot of Asian customers. Leicester is a very diverse city so for us to host events for all those different groups is important for us and we want as many people to come to the arena as possible.”
