Baisakhi celebrations set for this weekend

THURROCK Asian Association is celebrating the famous Indian Festival of BAISAKHI on Sunday 15th April, 2012 from 6 to 8 pm at the Asian Resource Centre, 35 Clarence Road, Grays. Cllr Charles Curtis the Mayor of Thurrock and Cllr Wendy Curtis the Mayoress are the chief guests at this Community event.

This is a very prominent Festival which is celebrated all over India and also abroad where the people of Indian origin have settled like in Thurrock. This festival starts the Hindu New Year and also the Birth of the KHALSA, the Sikh Panth which was created on 13th April, 1699 by Guru Gobinb Singh Ji. In Punjab it is also the start of Harvest Season.

The celebrations will be full of Asian Music, dancing and singing. Some refreshments will be served. It is a free event which is open to all the communities in Thurrock and surrounding areas.

Please join with them in this Community event and have an enjoyable evening.


  1. Might be a bit of a diverse comment but I wonder what people will be doing on the 23rd, any celebrations going on, flag waving, parties etc, oh no I forgot we dont like to be seen to celebrate St Georges Day (ok he was not English after all) whilst I really admire all the other religions, cultures etc for holding their own festivals lets not forget our own culture.

  2. Got to say Lambo there’s great food. I understand where your coming from but most of the Sikh’s in Grays have been here for decades and have never caused any trouble.

  3. @ Lambo
    You know the saying, If you want something done, do it yourself..
