Kala Sangam 21st October 2019
Treasures of Nanak Exhibition

Bradford Police Museum

Treasures of Nanak Exhibition Launch

Wednesday 6 November – 5pm

To mark the 550th anniversary of Guru Nanak’s birth, Bradford Police Museum present an exhibition of rare Sikh artefacts, arms, armour, manuscripts, paintings and contemporary art.

One of the most travelled men ever to have lived, Guru Nanak visited places as far and wide as Iraq, India, the Himalayas and even the city of Rome. He aimed to unite mankind through his three core teachings – meditate, earn an honest living and share what you have.

This exhibition is the first of two by Bradford Police Museum to take place at Kala Sangam, with a second to follow in 2020.

Located on the site of the original 19th century police station in Bradford’s City Hall, the Bradford Police Museum provides a unique insight into the history and heritage of policing in the city.

Free entry – book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Exhibition runs until 23 January.
