40 Year Convention History

We will be celebrating our 40th birthday in 2017 and 50 years since "The Prisoner"        
PRISONER MUSEUM
Six of One's annual Prisoner event was enjoyed once more in Portmeirion, from 31st March to 2nd April, 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 Information page, or click 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. Find out more from this site and its links. The series' unforgettable catchphrase is: "Be Seeing You!" More 2017 photos are at www.sixofone-escape.co.uk
