Oscar Wilde exhibition features work by local artists

An exhibition, centred around the writer Oscar Wilde, has opened in Reading. The novelist - famous for books such as 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' and the play 'The Importance of Being Ernest' - was an inmate at Reading Prison in the late 1800s.

The display, featuring work from 20 local artists, is inspired by his poem 'The Ballad of Reading Gaol' and is on show in the Riverside Museum at Blake's Lock. Mel Bloor has had a look around.
