Shower Block Escape 40th Anniversary

SEPTEMBER - DECEMBER

On 1 September 1977, the largest escape from Maitland Gaol took place, and this September marks the 40 year anniversary of the event. To commemorate the occasion an exhibition will be dedicated to this escape and other interesting escapes that took place from the Gaol.

It's a great opportunity to learn about one of the most infamous escapes, 'The Magnificent Seven' and how they executed their escape and the consequence of their crime.
