Dame Judi Dench supports the campaign

Judi Dench has given her support to the campaign to Save Reading Gaol to become a  cultural and artistic centre.

“It would be a great gift not only to Reading as a town and growing population centre of the South, but also to the UK and the world as a whole.

The idea of plays being performed, people learning and enjoying themselves, and a community coming together in a space that represented so much sadness and inspiration for Oscar Wilde himself is a beautiful one.”
