Knife Angel Visit to Guildford Cathedral


A thought-provoking monument which aims to inspire social change will visit Guildford Cathedral on the 1st-30th March 2023 as part of the UK National Youth Anti-Violence Tour and programme. 

A month-long programme designed to raise awareness of the impact of violence and aggression in our community – including bullying, domestic abuse, hate language and the carrying and using of weapons - is being developed. Taking place in various venues in and around Guildford with the central catalyst of conversation being the 27’ ‘Knife Angel’ statue which will be outside Guildford Cathedral.

The Angel will inspire and provoke reflection, education and resolve to work to make all communities places without aggression or violence.

The Knife Angel will be on display outside the Cathedral from Wednesday 1st March 2023 and the public will be able to view the 27ft sculpture throughout the month.
