"This unique series of events aims to inspire inform and entertain," said Harbinder Singh, Director of the ASHT.

Tigerstyle also saids they were keen to be involved in this year's event. "Performing a live session, outdoors at the tower of London will be a historic occasion," they said. "We are excited about launching this season with ASHT and have had a keen interest in Sikh history and culture throughout our upbringing and music."
