Prisons in England and Wales have weathered a succession of crises since 1947. Following the launch of his new book, Brendan O’Friel, Prison Governor during the Strangeways riot of 1990, will draw upon his experiences to explore the ‘unanswered questions’ arising from the chronic prison crises. Brendan will also take us on a journey of the connection to Manx prisons, including the period that Castle Rushen served as the Island’s gaol.

 

We will e-mail the joining details for Zoom by 12 noon before the talk begins at 2pm.

 

Prison Governor’s Journal by Brendan O’Friel is now available in our online shop.
