During his life, Guru Nanak wrote nearly 1,000 verses which are included in Sikh scripture, Guru Granth Sahib and the eternal Guru of the Sikhs. The verses are written to the Indian classical raga and tala system.
The concert marks the UK launch of The Peace Charter for Forgiveness and Reconciliation, which was launched in 2019 in Germany.
The charter is the founding document of a worldwide movement of people who seek to promote the oneness of humanity through forgiveness, reconciliation, justice and sustainable peace.
Proceeds from the concert go to UK homelessness charity NishkamSWAT and Zero Hunger with Langar, supporting children with meals in Malawi, Africa.
On the day of the event, no alcohol is served in Royal Festival Hall’s bars after 4pm.
