The Knife Angel

Wednesday 1 February - Monday 27 February

The Knife Angel is a thought-provoking monument which aims to inspire social change, and we are honoured to be hosting it in February as part of the UK National Youth Anti-Violence Tour and Programme.

The National Monument for Serious Violence and Aggression, the Knife Angel, is being supported by county wide organisations that have come together through the Stronger, Safer Gloucester community safety partnership to bring the striking symbol of peace to the city.

The eight key partners include Gloucester Cathedral, Gloucester City Council, Gloucestershire County Council, the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, Gloucestershire Constabulary, Gloucester BID, Gloucester City Safe and NHS Gloucestershire Integrated Care Board.

The Knife Angel is a 27ft sculpture which aims to raise awareness of all aspects of violence, and it will be on display in Cathedral Green from Wednesday 1 February. Members of the public are warmly invited to come and see it, and to take part in the programme of events and activities that will accompany it.
