Kate Winslet – Banksy Art and Reading Prison
Kate Winslet said it was “incredible” Banksy had chosen Reading Prison for his latest piece as she joined calls to turn the old jail into an arts venue.
The Oscar-winning actress is supporting a theatre group hoping to stop the site being knocked down for housing.
Banksy confirmed he was behind the mural, with many believing it showed he backed moves for an art centre.
Winslet, who grew up in Reading, promised to perform on opening night if the plans became a reality.
Banksy’s painting of an escaping prisoner – possibly resembling famous inmate Oscar Wilde – appeared last week.
