We are also delighted to announce that Andy Burnham, a Labour party leader candidate, will visit The Shankly Hotel to unveil a Hillsborough memorial, which is situated in the reception area of the hotel. The memorial features 96 candles as a tribute to those who tragically lost their lives at the Hillsborough disaster on 15th April 1989, with each candle bearing an individual name.

Andy Burnham will be joined by members from the Hillsborough Family Support Group, including chairperson Margaret Aspinall.

Christopher Shankly-Carline, Bill Shankly’s grandson and the director of The Shankly Hotel, commented: “We are really pleased Andy Burnham has agreed to officially reveal the memorial. We wanted to create a permanent tribute to remember the 96 who lost their lives at the Hillsborough disaster. I chose Andy as not only is he a scouser, but he is an MP who has been fighting alongside the Hillsborough Family Support Group for justice since 2010.”
