About this event

In 2022 we visit yet another brand new and exciting location: HMP Dorchester! Built in 1795 and left abandoned when it closed in 2013 the prison is a unique and well preserved example of a British prison that has moved through a vast amount of criminal history. Due to closing in 2013 many areas of the prison are subject to urban decay, with peeling paintwork and distressed furnishings which really adds to the photographic element of this location.

We have arranged exclusive access to this vast venue which includes cells, hallways and corridors, a gymnasium and many more prison rooms and areas.  We will have a host of themed models which will include a professional fashion model and re-enactors who will be spread out around the site for you to photograph. 

We will also have our LEDs and lighting available to use.

We will have 2 sessions available, 10:00-13:00 & 14:00-17:00, book for both sessions and get 10% off, use offer code: PRISON10
this session will run from 14:00-17:00.

There are toilets and free parking on site.
