Anne Kirkbride's memorial service details announced

A memorial service for Annie Kirkbride will be held in Manchester on Saturday May 30.  The Oldham Chronicle have the details of the service today. 

The service will take place at Manchester Cathedral and the cathedral’s Sub Dean, Philip Barratt, will conduct the memorial.

There will be readings and tributes by William Roache (Ken Barlow), Beverley Callard (Liz McDonald) and Elle Mulvaney (Amy Barlow) as well as the soap’s executive producer Kieran Roberts.

Photographs of Anne as Deirdre and with her family will be on display - as will an exhibition of the artwork Anne photographed and painted throughout her life.

The Manchester Cathedral Choir will sing hymns “The Lord’s My Shepherd”, “Hills of the North Rejoice” and “How Lovely are thy Dwellings”, with musical accompaniment by a violinist and pianist from Chetham’s School of Music.

Sounds just lovely.
I think it still hasn't sunk in that she's gone. :(

Thanks dear ones for posting, I agree with "C" that it hasn't sunk in. I absolutely adore this picture of Anne laughing, she's such an inspiration to be happy and laugh.

Did a similar service for my dad last May - I'm sure it will help everyone to cope with the magnitude of loss. It's a nice touch to include Elle Mulvaney among the speakers.
