Meet the Author - Nick Wallis: The Great Post Office Scandal (Farncombe, Surrey) Friday 18th March @ 7.30pm - some tickets still available!


In 2017, the tail end of the biggest miscarriage in British legal history struck at the core of Farncombe, devastating the life of our ex Sub-Postmaster Chirag Sidhpura and his family. 

Chirag was accused of stealing £57,000 on account of the faulty Horizon IT system, just as Post Office Directors were gearing up to fight 555 ex-Sub-Postmasters at the High Court. 

These were innocent men and women who had faced a similar fate to Chirag; some were convicted, bankrupted, imprisoned; others lost homes, marriages, their sanity or their lives.

This extraordinary saga has been followed by award-winning journalist, Nick Wallis (Panorama, Private Eye), culminating in his newly published ‘The Great Post Office Scandal’ in which Chirag features. 

The fight for justice goes on as Farncombe’s ex-Sub-Postmaster and thousands of others refuse to be defeated by force’s which are powerful, state-funded and have gone to almost any lengths to avoid exposure...’

10% of ‘The Great Post Office Scandal’ proceeds go to a charitable fund to help affected Sub-Postmasters’.
