The Knife Angel visits Somerset in April

The Knife Angel visits Somerset in April.

A sculpture which aims to raise awareness of the negative effects of violence
and aggression will be in Somerset next month as part of a nationwide tour.

The Knife Angel stands at 27 ft tall, weighs 3.5 tonnes, and was designed by
artist, Alfie Bradley at the British Ironwork Centre using 100,000 knives and
blades retrieved from amnesty bins from across all 43 UK police forces.

Somerset Council and Taunton Town Council are supporting and encouraging
a 30-day campaign of anti-conflict awareness raising with schools, community
groups and local businesses.

The Knife Angel will be placed outside the Market House in Taunton from 03 –
30 April.
