HMP The Verne Host Festive Open Mic
Finishing the year on a high, learners from HMP The Verne starred in a fantastic “Festive Open Mic” event organised by Weston College Prison Education. The superb acts included poetry reading, original acoustic songs, cover bands, and a full choir. Members of the education team were appointed as impartial judges and were asked to pick their top 3 acts. Prizes were given to the winning acts by the prison governor, David Bourne. This was a very successful event showcasing some incredible creative talent from the prisoners of The Verne. What a great way to end the year and well done to all involved.
