In 1982, one David Hegarty entered a numerical Prisoner-related competition in the fanzine 'The Tally Ho' to win an original Villager cape, as worn during 'Prisoner' filming, after Pamela Barnes had secured the cape to use as a prize.
Now, over 50 years later, the cape (left) is back at Portmeirion, now on a permanent basis, after Dave decided he would like to donate the item to Portmeirion to display.
From November 2018 onwards the cape can now be seen in the Hercules Hall by the spiral staircase, at the end of the terrace restaurant (below), thanks to Dave's generosity.
With thanks to David Hegarty for the photos.
