Sikhs across Yorkshire will be joining a national gathering at the end of the month.

Around 30,000 people will take part in what is expected to be the largest ever Sikh gathering outside India.

The event in the grounds of Prestwold Hall, Loughborough, on Sunday September 28 celebrates the 300th anniversary of Aad Siri Guru Granth Sahib Ji (the Sikh holy scriptures).

It will include prayers, hymns, martial art demonstrations, storytelling and workshops on Sikh prayer and British Sikh heritage.
