Escape The Tower

  • Miss Yankey

Working with the spoken word artists who came out of the previous project 'Get Into The Tower: The Mark Makers', Industry In The Streets collaborated with Poetry Prescribed to provide workshops which would produce creative responses to or inspired by John Gerard’s escape, and his life as a Catholic Priest in the 16th century. It formed a part of The Tower of London's launch of Tower Escapes, a daily offer which was available onsite for visitors to explore the story of John Gerard; an English Jesuit Priest, held prisoner at the Tower during the reign of Elizabeth I.
