Memorial

The Glade of Light – currently under construction – is a memorial commemorating the 22 May 2017 terrorist attack at Manchester Arena.

It honours the 22 people whose lives were taken, as well as remembering everyone who was left injured or affected.

It is designed to be a living memorial, a tranquil garden space for remembrance and reflection. Its peaceful surroundings are also intended as the setting for commemorative events in the city relating to the attack.

Families who lost loved ones have been kept informed and consulted at key moments during the design and construction process, including the appointment of designers BCA Landscape and Smiling Wolf.

It is due to be completed in winter 2021.
