Moznu Miah, chairman and trustee of the mosque, said: "It was the first time we've held prayers outside and we wanted to take advantage of the good weather."


He thanked police and councillors for helping make the event a success.

There were also outdoor prayers on Sunday morning at Cheney School in Headington, put on by the Oxford Eid Extravaganza team.

It was followed by a free family fun day, which included fairground rides, music and food stalls.
