The Sikh community in Preston will be holding its first ever Nagar Kirtan event this weekend.

The special custom involves a procession through the city, with the singing of holy hymns and a display of Sikh martial arts, and organisers hope the event will attract visitors from across the region.

Lakhbir Singh Rai, general secretary of the Guru Nanak Gurdwara Cultural and Recreation Centre, said the event was the most important date in the calendar for Sikhs, and this year’s would also mark the centenary of the First World War.
