The names of the 96 people unlawfully killed in the Hillsborough stadium disaster will be read at a special commemorative event today.
The service, at St George's Hall plateau in Liverpool, will feature a mixture of tributes, music and speeches looking back on the 1989 disaster.
Names and ages of those killed will be read out and displayed on large screens, while the Sense of Sound choir will perform the Liverpool football team's anthem, 'You'll Never Walk Alone'.
Members of the public will be invited to attend the commemoration, which is due to begin at 5.45pm and will last around two hours.
Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson said: "The event at St George's Hall is an opportunity for the city to come together with the families and campaigners and show the world the overwhelming spirit of comradeship and solidarity that exists in this city towards them."
