A huge sculpture made of 100,000 confiscated knives arrived at Coventry Cathedral in March to raise awareness around rising knife crime.

Advent Communications helped secure coverage of the Knife Angel’s residence in Coventry in major national publications, including The Guardian and the Daily Telegraph as well as a range of local and regional media.

The 27-foot high Knife Angel was created by artist Alfie Bradley at the British Ironwork Centre, with the aim of encouraging people to reflect on the tragedies that have occurred as a result of knife crime.

The sculpture’s time in Coventry has been supported by West Midlands Police, Coventry Cathedral, Coventry City of Culture Trust, Coventry City Council, Positive Youth Foundation, Medwell Hyde, Deeley Group, Norman Hay, WM Housing Group, Wasps, Absolute Services Group, National Express, Buckingham Group Contracting, Cadent Gas and The Coventry and Saltem Ltd.
