Celebrate Vaisakhi in Trafalgar Square

Today, Trafalgar Square marks Vaisakhi from noon until 6pm, a traditional Punjabi celebration of harvest that holds particular significance for Sikhs as the moment in 1699 that Guru Gobind Singh ji 10th Guru of the Sikhs, established the Khalsa.
.

In the Square today, we are told to expect music and Bhangra and Punjabi dance from the like of Alaap, Shin of DCS, Navin Kundra, Juggy D, Foji, The Phat Kat Koalition, as well as food and family bits and bobs like face-painting, henna artists and a mango festival.
