The team behind the Knife Angel project have announced it will sit outside the West End of Hereford Cathedral for 30 days from 14th June as it restarts its national tour following the pandemic.

The sculpture by artist, Alfie Bradley, was created from 100,000 blades handed in to or confiscated by police forces across the UK and has toured a number of our cathedrals already including Chester, Coventry, Derby, Leicester, Liverpool and Rochester.

The Hereford organising team visited the Ironwork Centre to discuss the logistics of safely moving the Angel to Hereford Cathedral. They have created the Hereford Crime Conference, pulling together education providers of all types, community leaders, emergency services and council representatives.

During the Knife Angel’s visit, the Knife Angel Hereford team will run a series of workshops and interactive events. It is envisaged that this initiative will continue after the Knife Angel leaves Hereford.
