Following the tragic events which took place in Manchester last night, the General Election Hustings due to take place this evening at Gloucester Cathedral has been cancelled.

Prayers for Manchester will be held at Evensong from 5.30pm. Candles and a prayer station are also available in the Cathedral for anyone who wishes to come and reflect throughout the day.

The Very Reverend Stephen Lake, Dean of Gloucester said, “Our prayers are for Manchester today. Such senseless acts will not divide good people. Everyone is welcome to join us as we pray in the cathedral at 5.30pm.”
