Hear from live storytellers as they confess their innermost sins
Did Guy Fawkes freely confess or was he tortured into an admission of guilt? What’s the difference between a confession freely given and one attained by force? On the anniversary of Guy Fawkes's infamous hanging, watch live storytellers as they confess their own stories of free will in a special performance within the chapel of St Peter's ad Vincula.
