We Stand Together
21 May 2018
With less than a week to go until the anniversary of the Manchester Arena attacks, intu Trafford Centre will be joining the commemorative anniversary programme led by the city to enable staff, retailers and customers to reflect and remember.
At 2.30pm on Tuesday 22 May, staff, retailers and shoppers, along with the people of Manchester and around the country will be invited to observe a minute’s silence throughout the centre.
Visitors to the centre on the day will be able to come and share their messages of hope on a tree of remembrance which will be in the Main Dome all day. The tree will sit alongside a candle which will burn throughout the day and there will be iconic Manchester music, as chosen by the public, played by classical violinist Craig Owen.
The commemorative service being held at Manchester cathedral will be live streamed on the screen in The Orient and throughout the day, specially selected music will be played on the Big Screen along with verses from the poem ‘This is the place’, by Tony Walsh.
There will also be Manchester bees created as part of the landscape at two of the entrances to the centre close to Debenhams and John Lewis.
Alison Niven, Regional Centre Director, intu Trafford Centre said: “We understand how important it is for the people of Manchester to show strength and solidarity on this difficult day. We hope that we can play a small part in giving people a place to show their respects and commemorate the day.
