The Knife Angel is coming to Hereford on 1 June 2021.
The Knife Angel is a stunning 27ft, 3.5 ton, sculpture of an angel made out of 100,000 confiscated knives received from 43 Police Forces across the UK.
Originating from The British Ironwork Centre in Oswestry and created by sculptor Alfie Bradley, it has been on tour of towns and cities around Britain raising awareness of the issues of knife crime and all forms of violence and aggression.
The Knife Angel is coming to Hereford in June 2021 for 28 Days, hosted by Hereford Cathedral. During the Knife Angel’s visit there will be a series of workshops and interactive events. It is envisaged that this initiative will continue after the Knife Angel leaves Hereford. The majority of host towns & cities to date have had a knife amnesty whilst the Angel is in situ. There will be a general weapons amnesty, with the approval of West Mercia Police. There is a “knife surrender” secure bin which travels with the Angel.
