Manchester Attack: One Year Later

Services have been held all over the city of Manchester to Mark One year since the Ariana Grande Manchester show attack.

One year ago, 22 people, many children, lost their lives after a terrifying attack at Ariana Grande's concert at Manchester Arena. Many more were injured and taken to hospital, recovering from physical injuries and for many months later, being supported emotional. 


Ariana Grande co-ordinated a benefit concert following the attack called 'One Love Manchester', held at the same venuse as the attack, which more than 55,000 people attended.


The benefit concert included performances by Chris Martin from Coldplay, Miley Cyrus, Little Mix, Katy Perry and Justin Bieber. 


The benefit raised money for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, established by British Red Cross and Manchester City Council. Since the attack, the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund has raised more than $13 million.


One year on from the attack, the Duke of Cambridge and Prime Minister Theresa May were among those at a service of remembrance at Manchester Cathedral, along with families of the victims of the suicide bombing, the injured, the first responders to the scene, civic leaders and other national figures.

Many watched proceedings on a big screen in nearby Cathedral Gardens, while the service was also be screened at York Minster, Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral and Glasgow Cathedral.


At 10.31pm, bells tolled from buildings across the city centre to mark exactly one year from when the attack took place.
