On the morning of March 1st Reading residents woke up to find the prison walls adorned with a wonderful new piece of artwork. A prisoner, possibly Oscar Wilde himself, is climbing down the prison wall with a typewriter. A few days later Banksy confirmed that it was his artwork.
Stephen Fry has added his voice to the campaign to Save Reading Gaol. Stephen played Oscar Wilde in the film Wilde and is an Honorary Patron of the Oscar Wilde society.
