Charlie Hebdo Public Remembrance Event

Sunday 11 January – 3pm – Barkers Pool, Sheffield

On Sunday 11 January 2015, at 3pm, at Barker’s Pool, Sheffield City Centre, a service of commemoration, remembrance and solidarity for those killed in the recent atrocities in Paris will be held. The event will be reflecting on the lives of those killed and injured, and celebrating their work, as well as the ideals that they lived and died for.

Speakers will be from a variety of backgrounds and will represent a variety of beliefs and ideals. The Lord Mayor and the Cabinet Member for Communities and Public Health will be attending. MPs will be invited, and we hope for a good turnout from the public.

We intend that the event will be a time for reflection, expression and prayer. We will be taking the opportunity to talk about the importance of free speech, respect, tolerance and support, and how these precious values hold our society together.

As it becomes available more information will be sent out by email and posted on the event’s Facebook page:
