Reading Sikh Awareness & Turban Day
Event time 11.00am - 4.00pm
Event cost Free

Families, locals and shoppers are invited to join the Sikh Community in Reading Town Centre this weekend, for a Sikh Awareness and Turban Day.
The event takes place on Sunday, June 16, on Broad Street, outside The Oracle shopping centre, between 11am-4pm, and is a free community event open to all.
The day's events, are being held to commemorate the martyrdom of the 5th Guru of the Sikhs, Guru Arjun Dev Ji, whom was tortured and martyred in 1606 by the Mughal Emperor at the time.
The Guru taught the Sikhs to accept God's will as sweet and so traditionally around this time each year, Sikhs mark this negative with a positive act by serving others a cold sweet non alchoholic drink, known as 'Chabeel'.
Come meet and join the local Sikh community and enjoy a free cold refreshing soft drink.
Find out more about the Sikh faith with the Sikh Educational charity, Basics of Sikhi, and have all of your questions answered.
Learn about the Sikh Turban, known as a 'Dastar', its importance and significance to a Sikh, and experience what it feels like to wear the Turban with free turban tying by Chardikala Turban Academy.
The day's events are organised by the Reading & Wokingham Sikh community with support of the local councils.
