Free, no ticket required

The extraordinary Knife Angel will be located on Performance Square outside Sage Gateshead from 30 January – 27 February.

The 27ft tall sculpture is made from over 100,000 seized blades and was created to highlight the negative effects of violent behaviour. It symbolises a call for change whilst acting as a national memorial for victims of knife crime. Local charity Samantha’s Legacy secured the display for the region as part of an educational campaign taking place throughout February.

A book of reflections will be available by the East doors of Sage Gateshead for visitors to leave their messages and thoughts.

The sculpture was designed and created by artist Alfie Bradley at the British Ironwork Centre.

Knife Angel was brought to Gateshead in partnership with Gateshead Council, Samantha’s Legacy and Northumbria PCC supported by Sage Gateshead.
