This is how Liverpool will mark the 33rd anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster

Liverpool will mark the 33rd anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster on Friday (15 April).

Flags will be flown at half-mast from civic buildings (St George’s Hall, Cunard Building and Liverpool Town Hall) and bells will toll 97 times at 3.06pm from the Town Hall to remember those who lost their lives as result of the tragedy on Saturday 15 April 1989.

The city will be asked to fall silent and pause for one minute at 3.06pm – the time at which the match was officially stopped – to reflect on the events and those affected by them.

Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Mary Rasmussen will lead the silence in Exchange Flags, at the rear of the Town Hall.

The Town Hall will also be open from 10am to 5pm on Friday for people to view the poignant brass plaque which is engraved with the names of the 97 victims. Visitors are asked to use the Exchange Street West entrance.

Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Mary Rasmussen, said:

“This is a sombre time for our city and I am proud and moved to lead the commemorations this year.

“We have always pledged never to forget those who lost their lives as a result of that tragic day 33 years ago – in doing so we honour their memory and stand in solidarity with their families.

“As the first citizen of Liverpool, I urge everyone to stop what they’re doing on Friday at 3.06pm and take time to remember those who we lost and give our thoughts and prayers to all those affected by the tragedy.”

In the evening, the Town Hall will also be lit red as an act of remembrance.
