The Lord Mayor of Manchester Councillor Elaine Boyes will lead a solemn ceremony on Thursday 9 August to mark the 67th anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The service will begin at 10.30am in Lincoln Square, Brazennose Street, and include the reading of the The Hiroshima and Nagasaki 2010 Peace Deceleration.
At 11am a two minute silence will commemorate all civilians that have been killed in conflicts since 1945. This will be followed by an address from Tadatoshi Akiba, former Mayor of Hiroshima.
The ceremony is open to all members of the public and will also see readings from the Hibakuska, survivors of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, members of the British Nuclear Test Veteran Association and the Chernobyl Children's project.
Lord Mayor of Manchester Councillor Elaine Boyes said, "It is incredibly important we remember and honour all those who lost their lives in the horrific bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and although it is an honour to be leading the ceremony this is an incredibly sad anniversary.
"The ceremony will allow us all to reflect on the very real human cost of conflict across the world and remember all the men, women and children that have senselessly lost their lives.
"Manchester is proud of its involvement with the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and it will be a privilege to stand shoulder to shoulder with them on this sombre day."
