Manningham Parade

     A parade was held today through the streets of Manningham to celebrate the birth of the prophet Muhammad.  Participants from as far away as Bristol travelled to Bradford to take part in the parade which started outside of the Jamia Naqshbandia Islamic Centre in Tile Street, Manningham.  I was invited into the mosque after the event, the first time I have ever been inside a mosque, and was also kindly given a meal (the first time I have ever eaten anything that wasn't a Yorkshire Pudding or a Pork Chop, honestly!)  So a day of firsts, really.

  1. I think we briefly exchanged "hello" as you were only other photographer I saw there? I only caught the last half of the parade and I will publish my pics in a week or so.
