The Norwegian government has published a programme for first anniversary of the attacks, with the occasion being marked with various ceremonies around Norway.
Current plans include allowing the survivors of the Utøya shooting to visit the island on the morning of the 22nd July with Labour Youth (AUF) also planning an event there on the day.
Memorial services will be held at several Churches around the country, including Oslo Cathedral.
A national memorial concert will be held at the city hall in Oslo and will include performances from DeLillos, Karpe Diem and Marit Larsen.
Many of those performing at the concert have written songs especially for the anniversary.
