Post Office Scandal: The Inside Story


This event has passed.

“An extraordinary journalistic expose of a huge miscarriage of justice” – Ian Hislop, Editor, Private Eye

“A tale brilliantly told by Nick Wallis, who has dedicated years of work to establishing what happened, why it happened and calling those responsible to account” – Rev Richard Coles, Presenter

This is the true story of how hundreds of innocent Post Office workers fought to clear their names when accounting errors created by dodgy IT (a notoriously unreliable system called ‘Horizon’) led to them being accused of theft and fraud.

Proud pillars of their communities were stripped of their jobs and livelihoods. Many were forced into bankruptcy and/or borrowed from friends and family to give the Post Office thousands they did not owe. Hundreds of innocent people were criminally prosecuted by the Post Office’s own private prosecutors and sent to prison.
