A special tribute will be paid on Manchester Day to the victims of the terror attack in the city on May 22.
The city council says Manchester Day is the event that best encapsulates the city’s pride, diversity, community spirit, strength and solidarity.
The tribute on Sunday 18 June will be an additional element at the front of the parade, and will also honour the efforts of the emergency services in the days after the attack.
“Manchester Day will show the city’s resilience and collective spirt where people come together to celebrate a shared love for our city.
“Our thoughts remain with the families of those who lost their lives last week – as well as those who were injured – and we believe it is important that Manchester Day pays tribute.
“We know thousands of people will come out to on Sunday 18 June and we look forward to seeing you for an incredible day of celebration.”
