New - 2017 revised and updated Patrick McGoohan biography, with new foreword and contributions by Catherine McGoohan, plus new photos.
It is now 10 years since the 2007 first edition, and the new book covers the period after that, the actor's passing in 2009 and the years up to the present time, his legacy.
The contents are up to August 2017, in time for the 50th anniversary of the first screening of "The Prisoner" in Canada on 5th September, 1967 and the British one on 29th September.
The book cover has the same dimensions as the out of print first edition.

Available now from Escape Books.

Six of One's annual Prisoner event was enjoyed once more in Portmeirion, from 31st March to 2nd April, 2017, with special guest Christopher Benjamin (photos 7 and 18). Images 1 to 11 below are by Marc Christiansen and photo 12 is by Ian French, followed by six images from Michael Kimpel - thanks to everyone for providing these photos.

The society held its 2017 36th annual Convention once again in the renowned setting of Portmeirion Hotel, in North Wales. Registered members can attend all indoor and outdoor events in the many acres of grounds. The hotel village of Portmeirion is block booked by Six of One, so that members can stay at the resort during the convention weekend. Portmeirion's shops, bars and dining facilities are also open.

Special guest celebrities attend and stay over the weekend. The location was used for the filming of the cult 1967 British television series "The Prisoner", starring Patrick McGoohan. Visitors to Portmeirion over the Convention weekend can watch outdoor activities, but not attend indoor events.

To join "Six of One", see the link at the top of this page. With the backing of Granada Ventures/ITV, owners of the series, and Portmeirion, who operate their famous "Prisoner Shop", Six of One recreates the ominous "Village". From here, in the 17 TV episodes, the prisoner 'No. 6' tried each week to escape. Open buggies, giant white 'guardian' balloons, penny farthing bicycles and strange characters made up the fantasy Village. Join in the proceedings - from carnival atmosphere, to serious debate; from enactments, to screen presentations; from games like "Human Chess", on a large lawn board, to celebrity guests. The series' unforgettable catchphrase is: "Be Seeing You!" More 2017 photos are at www.sixofone-escape.co.uk
