Learning Events

Alongside our daily programme of activity visiting groups can support their learning by attending one of our special events and workshops. Held throughout the year these activities, including our Focus Features (listed below), have been designed to promote learner's spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

Any establishment booking a Guided Tour (£90) through the Learning Centre for a group of up to 25 students on any of the above Fridays, will receive a Focus Feature on this day for FREE. Space is very limited (four groups) and early booking is essential. Contact education@thenma.org.uk for more information.

WWI: Contribution of Dulmial Village, Pakistan
Join Dr Irfan Malik for this interesting insight to the contributions made in WWI by his own Pakistani ancestors. Irfan's talk centres around the role of his two Greatgrandfathers and a total of 460 soldiers from Dulmial Village, Pakistan, who took part in the WWI. Their services were rewarded with a British cannon, which holds centre stage in the village to this day. Irfan also mentions the overall Muslim contribution in the First World War.
