Bail set at £999

Judge in the CHSW Jail and Bail event at Bodmin JailWho would you like to see have "time" behind bars?

Jail & Bail is a hugely entertaining courtroom event which sees nominated supporters arrested, charged with their crimes (entirely fictitious, of course) and then placed on trial.

If our jailbirds are found guilty of their 'wicked and entirely fictional crimes', which they inevitably will be, get taken into custody, photographed and banished to the cells. They will only be released if they can raise bail of £999 from their connections, including friends, family and colleagues. This fun courtroom drama will raise vital funds for Children's Hospice South West.

The event returns to the newly refurbished Bodmin Jail on Friday 25 March 2022 where 10 defendants will be trialled in front of our notorious "no nonsense", Judge Elliott! 

This year, Little Harbour, our Children’s Hospice in Cornwall, is celebrating their 10th Anniversary. Help them mark the occasion by putting someone behind bars in 2022!  Do you have a boss, friend, colleague or local celebrity you would like to put on trial for an annoying habit, not pulling their weight in the office or do you want revenge! 

Nominate them now by emailing Kiley, no later than Friday 18 February 2022.
