Heart of London

“We are delighted to welcome back this incredible food festival for its third year at London Stadium!” said Graham Gilmore, London Stadium CEO.

The concept of halal, meaning permissible in Arabic, has traditionally been applied to food.
Muslims should only eat meat from livestock slaughtered by a sharp knife from their necks, and the name of Allah, the Arabic word for God, must be mentioned.
The London Halal Food Festival (LHFF) usually takes place in September every year, attracting thousands of food lovers.
