On the anniversary of the Manchester Arena bombing people a series of trees have been laid along the route from Victoria Station SJ8498 : It's ok NOT to feel ok to St Ann's Square. Members of the public are invited to write their own personal message and hang it on one of the trees.
Trees of Hope, Manchester 2018

The ‘trees of Hope’ trail was one of the events organised to mark the first anniversary of the terrorist bomb attack on the Manchester Arena which killed 22 concert-goers as they left a concert by American singer, Ariana Grande on 22 May 2017.

The trail features 28 Japanese maple trees placed in planters, each sporting the bee logo, along a route from Victoria Station to St Ann’s Square. From Saturday 19 May to Sunday 27 May inclusive, anyone wishing to leave a message of tribute, solidarity and love was able to attach it to one of the trees using specially-designed cardboard tags. At the end of the Trees of Hope event, all of the messages will be preserved and kept – alongside tributes left last year – in an archive of the city’s response to the attack. It is intended that the trees themselves will remain in the city centre.
