Hundreds of people packed into Newlands Girls' School to enjoy an Eid Bazaar yesterday.
Organised by the Salvation Youth Trust the women-only event, at the Maidenhead school in Farm Road, included a bouncy castle, rodeo bull and beauty area.
Traders from as far away as Leicester had joined in the fun by running stalls and selling a variety of jewellery and clothing.
It is the second time the event has been held following the success of the first event last year.

Tameena Hussain, who helped organise the event, said: "It was absolutely packed, there were good comments and good feedback from people.
"The stall holders have done really well and the kids have loved it."
This year a total of £3,500 was raised on the day which will help fund humanitarian aid for Syria and support local Salvation Youth Trust projects.
