SLIA celebrates its 45th Birthday at The London Marriott, Swiss Cottage
By Ishreen Bradley

The Sri Lankan Islamic Association UK (SLIA) celebrated its 45th anniversary in style through their annual Eid ul Adha celebration held this year at The London Marriott, Swiss Cottage on Saturday 16th September.

The Moroccan theme saw all male guests being gifted a traditional red Moroccan 'Fez' cap and the room looked resplendent with the sea of fez caps adding colour and vibrancy.

Guests were entertained by live nasheed music from a Moroccan group - two members of whom had flown in from Morocco especially to perform at the event. The food was absolutely delicious and catered for by Mia restaurant. It included; traditional and beetroot hummus, tabouleh, moussaka batinjian, grilled chicken wings, falafel, deep fried tiger trans, cheese smbousek, mixed grill, chicken sarwarma, rice, lamb shank with couscous…all finished off with Moroccan tea and baklava.

A lively evening was enhanced by a magic show for children and the rare treat of at table magic for adults.

A wonderful time was had by all and the SLIA Exco wish to acknowledge Marriott manager Rilwan Fareed, hospitality manager at the Marriott Swiss Cottage for his vision and the fulfilment of this special occasion. Another event that was well lead by the President Jazal Marzook along with his Exco team
