Prince William and Prime Minister to attend Manchester Cathedral 22 May service

It has been announced that HRH The Duke of Cambridge (Prince William) and Prime Minister Theresa May will be among the national figures attending the national service of remembrance to mark the one year anniversary of the Manchester Arena attack.

The service at Manchester Cathedral on 22 May 2018 will take place from 2-3pm, incorporating the national one-minute silence at 2.30pm.

It will be attended by an invited congregation including the families of those who lost their lives, the injured, first responders, civic leaders and national figures.

While space limitations mean the service to reflect on events of that terrible day and remember loved ones has to be invitation only, there will be opportunities for anyone to watch the service on a big screen in nearby Cathedral Gardens. For people across northern Britain who were also affected by events, the service will also be screened at York Minster, Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral and Glasgow Cathedral.
