Created to raise awareness around knife crime in the UK, The Knife Angel is made out of 100,000 confiscated knives received from 43 Police Forces across the UK. The sculpture has toured around the Country as a monument against all forms of violence and aggression. Standing at 27ft and weighing 3.5 ton, it is an incredible and powerful sight to behold.

Beginning in June 2021, the sculpture will reside at Hereford Cathedral for 28 days. During this, a series of interactive workshops and events will take place, including an opening and closing ceremony, a dedicated youth conference, weapon amnesty and more.

The Knife Angel Hereford Team explain who they are; “Alison Davies lost her son Mark to knife crime in December 2018 and together with friends Meryl Cain, Pauline Strong and Jan Jefferies wanted to raise awareness of the catastrophic impact violent crime has on individuals, families and communities. The team’s involvement with this project is carried out on a voluntary basis. The group are known as The Knife Angel Hereford Team.”

The team are also looking for help in the form of funding and volunteers. For more information, you can read more by visiting the team’s website: www.knifeangelhereford.co.uk

This is a strange sculpture, but I am keen to see it when it comes to Hereford. It is massive.
