When dinner is finished the defendant will be called to the stand… systematically our prosecution and defence barristers will lead you through the evidence... your job, under English & Welsh Law to determine what happened.
We have two criminal cases currently on tour in 2020. Details of which case is being heard can be found on the event listing.
The Crown vs. Mr Frank Lane
The trial of the Mr Frank Lane, charged for the murder of his wife Alison Lane at Loch Ness in Scotland in March 2017. This high profile case is an unusual example of a murder trial in the Crown Court with no body. Ultimately, do the prosecution have enough evidence to convince you the jury that they have enough evidence, beyond reasonable doubt that Mr Frank Lane murdered his wife and disposed of the body.
The Crown vs. Mr Paul Sutton
This historic murder case gripped worldwide media in 1993 when brothers Daniel and Stephen Brewer disappeared without trace on Boxing Day. There remains were discovered four years later underneath the concrete foundations of York University. For 12 years this murder case went unsolved as the police searched for the boys killer. A breakthrough later came when Mr Paul Sutton was pulled over for drink driving in Glasgow Scotland where DNA subsequently matched the DNA recovered from the boys remains. In this trial you will hear the evidence and decide the facts....
Check the event line up for the case listing. In both cases... innocent or guilty? You decide...
For the first time ever outside of the legal system you will experience the theatre and debate of the English justice system.
"Nobody has ever tested the system like this, what's so fascinating about this experiment is that the same trial and evidence could produce different verdicts in different locations -its fascinating”.
