Minute’s silence will mark Manchester Arena Attack
Government buildings throughout the UK will observe a minute’s silence to mark one year on from the Manchester Arena Attack
The Government has announced that a minute’s silence will be held on Tuesday 22nd May 2018 at 2:30pm in remembrance of those who lost their lives and all others that were affected by the Manchester Arena attack following the Ariana Grande concert one year ago.
The silence will be marked at UK government buildings and other organisations may follow suit.
In Manchester, a number of events are planned to mark the date: the council is encouraging choirs from across the city to come together to create the Manchester Together with One Voice in Albert Square and a civic memorial service will be held at Manchester Cathedral.
BBC Radio Manchester will broadcast live from the The Manchester Together One Voice event when it concludes with a communal singalong from 8.30pm to 9pm.
