THOUSANDS of Sikhs in the West Midlands will join in a procession tomorrow to celebrate the Tri- Centenary of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji being installed as the eternal and final Guru of the Sikhs.

The procession or Nagar Kirtan is a Sikh religious event where the Sikh holy scriptures will be taken as part of a procession from Guru Har Rai Gurdwara, High Street, West Bromwich to Guru Nanak Gurdwara, High Street, Smethwick.

It is being jointly organised by the seven Gurdwaras in Sandwell.

Event organiser and president of Guru Nanak Gurdwara, Avtar Singh Gill said, "I am delighted that we have been able to organise this Nagar Kirtan at this once in a lifetime occasion in the Sikh calendar."
