Vaisakhi Festival 2018Each year the official Vaisakhi Festival celebrations in London take place in Trafalgar Square in the heart of the city centre. A colourful way to welcome in the Sikh New Year, this fun, free event is a celebration of Sikh and Punjabi tradition, heritage and culture. There's traditional and modern Asian music and dancing, turban tying and an array of exotic culinary delights on offer. Live performances include music such as Kirtan (spiritual music), as well as modern dance music and DJs. In previous years crowds of 30,000 have attended the celebrations, which typically end with a final prayer for the good and well-being of the whole of humanity. Have a go at sports, arts events and fun activities for children and sample vegetarian food prepared by the Sikh community and on sale during the afternoon.

 

About Trafalgar Square

Lord Nelson, Britain's greatest military hero, and the mighty lions that surround him, pay testament to the position of Trafalgar Square at the heart of the capital, the heart of the nation, and, at one time, the heart of an empire that controlled three fifths of the world.
