"Last year's guests were amazed at the culinary expertise of the offenders who prepared and served the meal and gave them a standing ovation at the end. They were able to talk to them and prison staff were able to tell them about the training and employment opportunities that would be offered on release from prison, helping to reduce re-offending."

NO alcohol is allowed within the prison, soft drinks will be served
 Early arrival is required at 17.30 (that's 5.30pm) for ID Checks
