The Sikh Museum Initiative team was at Guru Nanak Gurdwara football Club in Leicester to exhibit their Anglo Sikh Wars pop up exhibition and digital interactives. Portraits of Sikhs who fought in the wars were displayed together with pages of the Illustrated London News from 1845-1849.
Players, coaching staff and members of the public team came and got a better understanding of Anglo Sikh history, this was a great way for youngsters and parents alike to learn more about the Anglo Sikh Wars.
