Vaisakhi is the most important day in the Sikh calendar,
commemorating the beginning of Sikhism as a collective
faith. London's Vaisakhi celebrations are an opportunity for
people from all communities, faiths and backgrounds to
experience a festival that is celebrated by over 126,000
Sikhs who live in the capital and 20 million people across
the world. All are welcome to attend the family-friendly
event, which as well as music and performance, food and
children's activities, will for the first time include
films, talks and an exhibition. This year's celebrations
will also take place much closer to the official Vaisakhi
festival - 14 April - than it has in previous years. City
Hall been working with representatives from the Sikh
community, including Singh Sabha London East Gurdwara, EY
Sikh Network and other groups, to create a culturally rich,
enjoyable day that represents Sikh identity and culture. The
new location will enable a range of additional new
activities to take place, such as film screenings, cultural
talks and poetry readings, alongside a colourful outdoor
programme of live performances. Visitors will be able to
enjoy traditional dance, turban tying and Sikh spiritual
music (Shabad Kirtan). Food (langar) will be prepared and
offered by volunteers from the Sikh community.
