Running throughout Sunday (18 November) there’s a chance to explore City Mosque Preston.

The North Road place of worship is one of a number of mosques across the UK opening their doors.

The mosque has a daily congregation of up to 100 and for Friday prayers up to 300 worshippers are regularly accommodated.

Secretary Mohammad Faisal said: “We are taking part in the spirit of friendship and conversation we hope to give members of the local community an engaging insight into the life of the mosque and promote a greater understanding of Islam.

“The open attitude of the mosque and its people make a major contribution to fostering interfaith and intercultural understanding in the community.”

The open day is from 11am to 4pm and there’s no need to register, you can just turn up.
