Thousands of people are set to mark the festival of Vaisakhi in Birmingham .
The celebrations mark what is the biggest event on the Sikh calendar and include prayers, processions, festivities and feasts.
Vaisakhi itself is celebrated on April 13 but the Birmingham celebrations, organised by the Council of Sikh Gurdwaras in Birmingham, will be on Sunday, April 30.

The event, which includes two processions plus open-air family festivities in Handsworth Park, are expected to attract more than 100,000 people.

Sangat from gurdwaras throughout Birmingham and Sandwell will share meals from a langar to overcome cultural differences and break down barriers.

People from diverse communities join in the festivities at the park and enjoy meals prepared by members of the Sikh community, as well as sing hymns that are set to music.
