Telford to host Knife Angel sculpture

The Angel will Begin its Shropshire Journey in March 2020

In March 2020, Telford is set to host the Angel in Southwater Square in the town centre where it will become a pivotal focus for visitors and Telford locals alike to view the Angel and its surrounding educational material.

During its 28 days in town, there will be intensive educational workshops and programmes for community youth. 

Joanne Jones of Black Country Metal works said: "Being situated in the County of Shropshire ourselves, we are completely delighted to give Telford & Wrekin the opportunity to host the Angel! Since before the Angel’s conception, we have worked very closely with the West Mercia Police force, who were the first force to join our ‘Save A Life, Surrender Your Knife’ campaign all the way back in 2015 through various amnesties and knife banks.

For such a pivotal part of Shropshire to step forward and also benefit from all the hard work that West Mercia Police have put in over the years is truly exciting for all of us, and we really look forward to seeing the Angel in Telford early next year."
