A MUSLIM festival at the Dolphin Centre in Darlington has been hailed a success.

A total of 150 people attended the Eid celebration, which had been organised by the Northgate Community Partnership.

The event, on Sunday, raised nearly £200 for Corporation Road Primary School, in Darlington.

The town's deputy mayor, Stella Robson attended the event, which included a band playing Bhangra, Dohl and Bass and an Indian buffet.

Shuma Choudhury, who helped secure funding for the event, said: "It was brilliant."
