1st May 2015 Event: Memon Festival

Date: Sunday 10th May 10am – 6pm

Location: Ethel Road Caribbean Cricket Club


Memon Youth Association have teamed up once again to run a ‘Memon Festival’ which is free to attend. The first one is planned for Sunday 10th May at the Ethel Road Caribbean Cricket Club. Organisers of the event will be celebrating and showcasing the amazing variety of high quality foods and sweets including entertainment for families. We are inviting local food and drink businesses, groups to get in touch if they want to be part of the Festival.
The festival plans to serve a delicious mix of foods and entertainment along with some tasty offers from local businesses. On the menu will include BBQ, Bhel Puri and for the sweet tooth Waffles, Ice Cream, Sweets and Candy Floss. There will be a few surprises along the way with much of the food been freshly cooked, sizzling and full of mouth-watering flavours and ready to eat! Are you coming?
To get the family buzzing (or not as the case may be) there will be lots of entertainment on the Bouncy Castle, face painting and mehndi. Under 12’s can get inspired by joining the 5a-side football competition and penalty shootout offering them a road to cup glory. Feeling laid back than why not grab an ice cream or BBQ then sit back on the grass verge and relax to watch a t20 cricket match between Leicester and London. It will be a neck and neck game to decide which memon team is better.
Ashraf Okhai, Chair of Youth Association said: “The ‘Memon Festival’ is all about creating a fun atmosphere in our community. We have seen how well our youth tournament works and we would like to build on its success. These events I hope will support our community for the future and especially allowing our children to experience pride to be part of our culture.
Ashraf Okhai continued: “The Memon Youth Association would like to thank all of our generous sponsors and volunteers for making this event possible and for showing their commitment in bringing our community together. Below we have listed some of our corporate sponsors, with still so many others to thank”
