Gloucester Cathedral is hosting The Bee on the Cathedral Green on Saturday 17 February.

This thought-provoking sculpture made from weapons seized off the streets, is touring the city and county. It aims to initiate discussions with people about the dangers of violence, and encourage young people to become active bystanders. The arrival of the Bee marks one year since the Knife Angel sculpture came to Gloucester Cathedral and sparked many important conversations.

It will begin its Gloucester journey on Friday 16 February in Kings Square, before going on display in Cathedral Green on Saturday 17 February, where it will be accompanied by bee themed crafts for children, as well as the Music Works Bus and the Hollie Gazzard Trust. The last chance for the public to view The Bee will be at the Docks on Sunday 18 February.

The Knife Angel Legacy Fund was set up to ensure this vital work around raising awareness and preventing violent crime in Gloucestershire can continue. You can donate to the fund here.
