Exhibition: Oscar Wilde and Reading Gaol
The Department of English Literature, in collaboration with the Berkshire Record Office, is delighted to present this special exhibition to mark the final closure of Reading Prison.
It presents archival materials from the prison, specifically relating to the time of Oscar Wilde's incarceration and gives a sense of Wilde's contribution to literacy and cultural life. The exhibition presents for the first time specially commissioned photographs taken of the prison as it was at the moment that it was closed.
The exhibition runs until 6 February 2015.
Admission is free, all welcome.
