Tour of Northamptonshire 2022
Our CEO Angie Kennedy has booked the Knife Angel to come on a tour of Northamptonshire, rescheduled to 30th April-28th May 2022.
The “National Monument Against Violence and Aggression,” more commonly known as the “Knife Angel,” stands 27 feet tall and is made of over 100,000 knives, confiscated by 43 Police Forces across the country. Thirty percent of the knives used in the sculpture were bloodied on arrival and came in biohazard bags. As part of a project called “Save a Life, Surrender your Knife,” the National Ironworks Centre (in Shropshire) organised more than 40 amnesties and 200 knife banks at its own cost.
Mr Bradley, the creator, describes it as "a memorial to those whose lives have been affected by knife crime". C2C Social Action will use the angelic visitation to Northamptonshire to work alongside a range of organisations in an intensive youth activity programme, in partnership with Northamptonshire Police, the Office of Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, and councils, schools, clubs and churches from around the county.

Locations & Dates
We’re taking the unprecedented step of moving the Angel instead of leaving it in one place for the month’s visit here in our county, Northamptonshire. It will come to Northampton first, then this exciting event will take place in Wellingborough, while on its way to Corby. It’s particularly poignant for Wellingborough in light of recent tragic events.
