Coventry is the current city hosting the Knife Angel on its journey across the UK. The Angel has been erected outside of Coventry Cathedral, where it stands proudly in front of the Angel St Michael sculpture. The cathedral was bombed almost to destruction during a massive attack on the city by German bombers on the night of November 14th, 1940. The Knife Angel will encourage reflection and empathy from viewers for all the knife crime victims the sculpture honours and immortalises. We worked together with Coventry City Council and in particular Cllr Ed Ruane, Cabinet Member for Housing and Communities, who personally championed the Knife Angel's move to the city.
