The world’s fastest henna artist kicked off a 10-day celebration at a shopping mall for Ramadan, the holiest month in the Islamic calendar.

An exhibition on Islam, entitled Know Muhammad, is being staged at Exchange Ilford, High Road, Ilford until Sunday.

There are also activities for children including an Eid treasure hunt and Indian head massages for any stressed shoppers.

Activities will be spread over two floors of the shopping centre.

Jayne Burton, from the Exchange, said: “It provides a great opportunity for everyone, young and old, to come together, have fun and learn about different cultures and traditions within our society.”
