Hi all,
A reminder that the Hiroshima Memorial Event in Aberdeen is Friday 6th August (tonight) at 8.30 p.m., off Riverside Drive by the Fisherman's Hut between Duthie Park and the Bridge of Dee (info and map attached).

200 peace lanterns will be released on the River Dee to commemorate the 200,000 men, women and children who were incinerated when the atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945.


Last year's ceremony in Aberdeen was an impressive event, attracting a large crowd of onlookers and supporters. This year the event will begin with poetry and speeches from faith groups, political representatives and other local groups. There will then be a minute’s silence before the lanterns are floated off down the river.  All members of the public are welcome to attend.  Please invite friends and family, and we hope to see you there.
