A 27ft sculpture made of knives is coming to Hull to show the impact of knife crime and culture.
The sculpture, ‘Knife Angel’, is made up with over 100,000 weapons collected in a knife amnesty. It is in the shape of an angel and engraved with messages from families of victims of knife crime.
The sculpture was made to tour the UK but has so far only been shown in Liverpool – making Hull the second city to host it.
It will be visiting the city as part of the #NoMoreKnifes campaign, launched by Hull Live last year alongside the RICH Foundation in a bid to rid the region’s streets of knife crime.
The exhibition will take place in The Rose Bowl inside Queen’s Gardens.
