Manchester Arena attack third anniversary

22 May 2020 - 09:05 by michelle.foster

Today marks the third anniversary of the Manchester terror attack, in which 22 people lost their lives and many others were left badly affected.

Owing to coronavirus-related restrictions, people are being encouraged not to gather together to mark the anniversary or leave tributes, but to mark it online or at home.

Prayers, led by Dean of Manchester Rogers Govender, which will include the names of the 22 people who lost their lives being read out, will take place at 9am and 4.30pm on Friday 22 May and be live-streamed at www.facebook.com/ManchesterCathedral/live

You can also learn more about the project to catalogue and digitise all the tributes left in St Ann's Square in the aftermath of the attack online via the Manchester Together Archive.

Further details about the plans for a permanent memorial for the 22 May 2017 attack can be found here
