Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Third Year Stage Management Students Present ‘…Until Proven Guilty’

…Until Proven Guilty is an immersive jail experience, where you, the audience member, will become one of six suspects of a recent murder.

It is your job to decide which of you is the murderer and why, using evidence found and given to you. Use your recreation time wisely, watch out for corrupt guards, and remember not everything is always as it seems…

Please note, during the experience you may be in a cell by yourself, but it will always be light. Please read additional safety guidelines before booking.

This immersive event is free of charge. 

There is a maximum audience number of 6 people per experience. You may book in groups up to 6 for each experience.

Venue: The Lock Up, Steelhouse Lane, Birmingham, B4 6NW

This immersive challenge will be taking place at The West Midlands Police Lock Up, Steelhouse Lane Birmingham. Find out more about the venue and the mission to make ‘The Lock Up’ into the future West Midlands Police Museum
