The Duke of Cambridge and Prime Minister will attend a service at Manchester Cathedral on 22 May 2018
Prince William and Prime Minister Theresa May are to attend a remembrance service at Manchester Cathedral on 22 May to mark the one year anniversary of the Manchester Arena attack.
The Duke of Cambridge will join the families of those who lost their lives, the injured, first responders, civic leaders and national figures attending the service, which will take place from 2-3pm and incorporate a national one-minute silence at 2.30pm.
While space limitations mean the service has to be invitation only, there will be opportunities for anyone to watch the service on a big screen in nearby Cathedral Gardens. The service will also be screened at York Minster, Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral and Glasgow Cathedral.
The 22 May will also see a mass singalong take place in Albert Square from 7.30pm to 9pm, and a light projection of song lyrics onto St Ann's Square from 22-26 May.
The council has also announced a 'Trees of Hope' trail running from 19-27 May, which will feature '28 beautiful Japanese maple trees' to which messages can be attached along a route from Victoria Station to St Ann’s Square.
