Team behind ‘Knife Angel Derby’ asks for community help


The team behind the Knife Angel coming to Derby is asking communities in Derby and Derbyshire to get involved and be a part of the visit.

Volunteers are being sought who would like to like to marshal and inform visitors, and hand out leaflets.

Plans for the visit of the iconic statue are now reaching an advanced stage as the team continues with preparations.

The team is looking for people to give a couple hours of their time, to stand with the Angel, provide brief information and hand out leaflets.

Known as the ‘Knife Angel’, the spectacular 27ft sculpture, made from around 100,000 bladed weapons collected in knife banks during police amnesties across the country, will be based next to Derby Cathedral on Iron Gate, for 28 days in October.

The times that need to be covered are 10am to 8pm between Wednesday 2 October to Tuesday, 29 October with the team asking for a minimum of 2 hours and a maximum of 4 hours at a time.

Training sessions, lasting a maximum of one hour, will take place at 7pm on Thursday, 19 September and 10am on Saturday, 21 September at a Derby City Centre location but, if you have a large group of volunteers, the team can come to you.

Anyone who is interested is asked to contact the team, stating the times and dates they would be able to assist, at
