Event description

Description

Islington Museum curator, Roz Currie, explores the story of the prison through protests inside, outside and about the prison itself. What did suffragettes experience at Holloway? How have women fought the system when they had no power? What will happen next on the Holloway Prison site?

At Finsbury Library

-----

Holloway Prison has been an important landmark in Islington for over 150 years. Until summer 2016 it was the largest women's prison in Britain. Many well-known prisoners have been held at the prison, but there are voices which remain unknown and unrecorded.

This project run by Islington Heritage Services, seeks to capture stories of this highly significant place meaning that, even now it has gone, the voices and echoes of Holloway Prison will remain.
