Sunderland's Sikh community welcomes the city

Project/s Description/s

Sunderland's Sikh community threw open its doors to welcome people from across the city today, to mark one of the religion's holiest days. Sunderland Sikh Association, in The Cloisters, Ashbrooke, held an open day to celebrate Vaisakhi. The festival marks the anniversary of the founding of the Khalsa - the Sikh order or community into which all followers of the religion are baptised or initiated - in 1699. This year's event, supported by Sunderland City Council and Gentoo, put the spotlight on Sikh culture, with displays of music and dancing, as well as crafts and food.
