Knife Angel

The Knife Angel sculpture was unveiled outside Coventry Cathedral on 14th March and will be in place until 23rd April.


The sculpture which was commissioned by the British Ironwork Centre and created by Alfie Bradley consists of 100,000 weapons which have been removed from UK streets through knife amnesties in partnership with all 43 UK Police Forces.

The 27-foot sculpture is the national monument against violence and aggression and has been very well received in Coventry with lots of community engagement and social media interaction.

If taking pictures to share on social media don’t forget to use the hashtags #NoMoreKnives and #KnifeAngel
