cropped-twitter-profile-pic.jpgHolloway Prison has been an important landmark in Islington for over 100 years. Until summer 2016 it was the largest women’s prison in Britain. Many well-known prisoners have passed through the prison, but there are diverse voices which remain unknown and unrecorded.

This project, run by Islington Heritage, in collaboration with Holloway Prison Stories and Middlesex University, seeks to capture stories of this highly significant place meaning that, even when it has gone, the voices and echoes of Holloway Prison will remain.

There are many ways to take part, whether you would like to share your memories and artefacts, volunteer your time for the project, or take part in the events and exhibition which will be taking place this year. Or just get in touch on twitter!
