Vaisakhi Festival 2016The official Vaisakhi Festival celebrations, taking place outside City Hall, are a colourful way to welcome in the Sikh New Year. The festival is truly a sight to behold with traditional and modern Asian music and dancing and an array of exotic culinary delights on offer. Commemorating 300 years of the consecration of Sri Guru Granth Sahib as the eternal Guru, the Vaisakhi festival includes performances of music such as Shabad Kirtin (religious hymns), 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. Vegetarian food prepared by the Sikh community is usually on sale during the afternoon.

City Hall is where the mayor's team works on the implementation of policies devised by the Greater London Authority... More about City Hall
