£36.00

The Wood Norton, Worcester Road, Evesham, Worcestershire WR11 4YB

Event Information

Join us for a captivating two course lunch event featuring a speaker like no other. Enter the gripping world of the Governor, Vanessa Frake .

Having worked for 16 years in a high security women’s prison dealing with the likes of Rosemary West and Myra Hindley, Vanessa Frake thought she’d seen just about everything. That was until she was transferred to the notorious Wormwood Scrubs as head of security and operations.

Thrust into a ‘man’s world’, her no nonsense approach and fearless attitude saw her rise through the ranks, as she engaged in daily battles of the wits with both inmates and staff. From dealing with celebrity criminals and busting drug rings, to recruiting informers and being subject to violent attacks, one of which resulted in a missing chunk of her shoulder, her gripping memoir ‘The Governor’ bares all.

Be prepared to be inspired and enlightened as Vanessa takes us on the thrilling journey of her career and shares her unfiltered insights into the British prison system. She’ll share highlights of her memoir and give a candid commentary on the triumphs and shortcomings of the system, providing a rare glimpse into a world few dare to explore.

Don’t miss this opportunity to witness first hand the extraordinary journey of a true trailblazer.
Join us for an event that promises to challenge your perceptions and ignite your passion for change.
