Council approves Manchester Arena Memorial

Glade of Light to honour victims of terrorist attack

A memorial is in the works to commemorate a terrible tragedy in Manchester.

City Council recently greenlit the project over three years after a bomb exploded outside the Manchester Arena on 22 May 2017.

22 people died when Salman Abedi’s bomb exploded following the Ariana Grande concert.

The Memorial garden known as The Glade of Light includes a “stone halo” centerpiece with the names of the victims.

It will be located in between the Manchester Cathedral and Chetham’s School of Music.

Manchester council lead Sir Richard Leese says the site “promises to be a beautiful tribute” to the 22 people killed.

There will also be personalised memory capsules containing items from each victim’s loved ones held within the centrepiece stone.

It will be located in between the Manchester Cathedral and Chetham’s School of Music.

Leese adds that the memories of those who died “will endure and Manchester will never forget them”.

A public inquiry into the tragedy began in September and is currently ongoing. (JSL).
