About this event

Shaun Attwood presents - with David McMillan - the true story of the only Westerner ever to break out of Thailand's dreaded "Bangkok Hilton".

Join us for a unique evening, with the child television star and Melbourne private schoolboy, who carved a name for himself as one of Australia’s biggest drug traffickers. He was intelligent, articulate, cunning ... and he loved the idea of making easy money.

David McMillan wasn’t always beyond the reach of the law - but even in the face of a death sentence somehow managed to come out on top.

This event gives you the opportunity to hear firsthand, the true story of drug smuggler David McMillan's perilous break-out from Thailand's most notorious Klong Prem prison. The 'Bangkok Hilton', where 600 foreigners wait and rot among the 12,000 inmates. Amidst the tragic, ruthless and forgotten, one man resolves to do what no other has done: escape.

After more than a year in prison and two weeks before a near-certain death sentence, McMillan escapes, never to be seen in Thailand again.

Tickets: * £25 per person - Price includes VAT but excludes booking fee

About David McMillan

This event is the true story of drug smuggler David McMillan's perilous break-out from Asia's most notorious prison.

After being arrested at Don Muang airport, McMillan spent over a year in Klong Plem awaiting trial. He watched as the other foreign prisoners fell prey to disease, violence and despair. Death appeared to be their only way out, but he resolved that this would not be the end for him.

Two weeks before a near-certain death sentence, McMillan escaped, never to be seen in Thailand again. In this gripping account, he reveals the nightmare of existence in this infamous jail and explains how he made his hazardous jailbreak.

Due to the nature of this talk it is strictly an 18+ event.
