Join us for a talk that will take you behind the dark and imposing walls of Newcastle’s former prison, Carliol Square Gaol. Tales From Newcastle Gaol will shed light on some of the extraordinary characters that were incarcerated there and the astonishing incidents that took place in its short lifespan (1828-1925). You will hear about many remarkable characters, from hunger striking suffragettes to daring double escapees and even harassed hangmen. It would be criminal to miss it.
