Thousands of people are expected to flock to Magna for Yorkshire’s biggest Asian wedding fair. The event on Sunday 8 February will feature stalls, food, a fashion show and live performances including by singer Imran Khan.
Last year more than 3,000 people attended. This year organisers expect even more.
Wedding caterers, decorators, photographers and henna artists will be represented, and the creative director of the fashion show will be supermodel Zaf Shabir.
Organiser Taf Khan Director of Chandni Events said: “The turnout last year was incredible and the event will be even better this time around.
“Last year the fair was broadcast around the world by one of the most popular and watched Asian TV channels in the world. This year we have two channels coming. So it really is a massive event.”
The fair, which costs £3.50 per person, will run from noon to 6pm on Sunday 8 February.
Lisa Woolhouse, of Magna, said: “We are delighted to welcome back the fair for a second year. We have so much space here that can be used for big events like this, but we also have small rooms for meetings and training.”
Magna, which is housed in the former Templeborough steel works, can cater for between 5 and 5,000 people.
In the last year it has hosted everything from dance events to business conferences.
As well as being a corporate venue, Magna is also an award-winning visitor attraction with more than 100 hands-on exhibits designed to explore the four elements of air, water, earth and fire, and it hosts regular school trips.
