The Knife Angel is in Harlow until 30 September

Situated outside The Playhouse this national monument against violence and aggression is an impressive and emotive piece of art that stands to remind us all of the impact that knife crime and other forms of violence has on individuals, families and communities.

We would like to encourage families to visit the monument with their children to see it to learn more about knife crime.

Melanie Hopwood, Founder of the Tommy Jones Project, said  “we are thrilled to bring the Knife Angel to Harlow; empowering our youth and raising awareness about the consequences of violence. As someone who has lost their son to the tragedy of knife crime, I am passionate and committed to spreading the message that the Knife Angel stands for: that violence is never the answer. Through this initiative, we strive to foster a community that rejects violence and embraces compassion and understanding.”

The Knife Angel leaves Harlow on Sunday 1 October when it will then be hosted by Colchester for the month of October.  

Working with The Tommy Jones Project, we will be hosting a closing ceremony on Saturday 30 September at 6pm outside The Playhouse. The ceremony will include speeches, awards and music.
