Derby Cathedral to be the First East Midlands Location to Host National Monument

The Knife Angel has now been travelling across UK for just over six months, with many other cities on the list to host it next, including the now confirmed city of Derby. In October of this year, the Angel will be proudly stood next to Derby Cathedral on Irongate which has been made possible through the passion of Derby Cathedral, Derbyshire Police, Derby City Council, Police and Crime Commissioner Hardyal Dhindsa, University Hospitals of Derby and the Burton NHS Foundation Trust. Derby will be the first East Midlands location to host the sculpture and we are incredibly excited to see it there later in the year.
