AGM and annual lecture
A personal account of life behind bars as a fraudster

We are delighted to announce our annual lecture will be delivered by the acclaimed documentary film-maker, journalist and author of ‘a bit of a stretch’ Chris Akins,  who will share some of his experiences of life behind bars after being sentenced in 2016 to a five-year prison sentence for tax fraud, including his views on the rehabilitation of offenders and whether prison really works.

Chris Atkins is a BAFTA-nominated filmmaker. His documentaries Taking Liberties and Starsuckers were critically acclaimed and made front-page news. He has also worked extensively with Dispatches for Channel 4 and BBC Panorama. Following his release from prison, he is now back in North London, filming documentaries and writing.
