London Mayor Vaisakhi at Trafalgar Square

Head down to Trafalgar Square to enjoy our Vaisakhi festival, a celebration of Sikh and Punjabi tradition, heritage and culture, commemorating the birth of the Khalsa (the inner core of the Sikh faith) over 300 years ago as well as marking the Punjabi New Year.

Binti will have a stand where we will talk about our favourite topic "Periods" and give you an opportunity to share your stories whilst getting involved with volunteering or donating. Every girl deserves dignity, period.

With a committed Sikh steering group creating the programme, you can expect authentic community appeal and something for everyone to enjoy, young and old alike.

The line-up will include: 

  • live stage performances
  • kirtan and dharmic (spiritual) music
  • theatrical excerpts 
  • traditional food and drinks (including langar) 
  • community groups and charities
  • fun children's activities
  • turban tying
  • have-a-go activations
  • Punjabi retail

and more!
