WHAT MAKES US UNFORGETTABLE?
FEEL INSPIRED & MOTIVATED
Enjoy the weekend with keynote lectures by international speakers, interactive seminars by specialised instructors and discussion panels with prominent guests. The topics have been carefully selected and prepared to be engaging, educational and relevant to the British Muslim community
This retreat will focus on The Greatest of Nations; Allah blessed our predecessors with much pride and honour. By delving deep and taking lessons from their stories, we can become more optimistic for a brighter future of Islam.
MAKE MEMORIES WITH YOUR LOVED ONES
Lockdown has been hard on us all, mainly because we couldn’t meet and enjoy the company of those we love. This retreat will allow you to make up for the missed time and spend quality time with each other once again.
We’ve been told time and time again that the community feel of being around other Muslim brothers and sisters is like being on Hajj and Umrah. This will surely be a time that you and your family will never forget.
RELAX & REJUVENATE YOURSELF
You can anticipate relaxing on fluffed up pillows, situated in an air of class and prestige - a common theme throughout the esteemed De Vere Hotels. Rooms are immaculately clean and comfortable for optimal relaxation and peaceful comfort.
Exclusively booked for Family Retreat, you will have the privacy and space to fully enjoy your Islamic identity, reflect on life with guidance and clarity, and return as a new you, insha’Allah.

“Rarely have I taken the family for an outing except that I felt that several things were missing that could have made it complete. One of the exceptions to this has always been Family Events. All of the boxes that a practising Muslim and a concerned father would be interested in are ticked, whether it's halal recreation, creative games for children, quality time with family, uplifting lectures and the meeting of inspirational people. All of these and more are some of the things provided by Family Events.” - Ali Hammuda
Ten years ago, we had a dream to provide Muslim communities with recreations and educational events as a source of guidance, direction and spiritual nourishment.
We had one main vision:
To See Every Muslim Family Love Living Islam!
By the grace of Allah, since our inception, we have held over one hundred events that have catered for tens of thousands of Muslims. We hosted everything from staycations and international retreats to dinners and masjid tours.
Even when the pandemic started, we continued our efforts through virtual seminars, online gameshows and much more, bringing Muslim families together to be inspired, have fun and ultimately come closer to Allah ﷻ.
If any of this sounds interesting to you then come along to our next event. We’d love to serve you!
