Below is a list of previous events we have held:
The City Circle organises weekly gatherings which act as forums for intellectual discourse, spiritual nourishment, community activity and social networking. It also holds fundraising dinners and conferences.
The diverse range of subjects covered in the weekly events and the wide spectrum of Muslim and non-Muslim opinion within it has established a respectable platform for honest critical debate which has allowed the City Circle to move sections of the community towards an increasingly proud, confident and positive definition of their identity as young British Muslim citizens in the UK.
Weekly events are held every Friday evening from 6:45pm, except for public or Muslim holidays, or during the month of Ramadan.
We look forward to seeing you at one of the following upcoming events:
