Do you dare to spend the night in Maitland Gaol?

For the ultimate group experience there is nothing like a sleepover behind bars. Your sentence will begin at 9.30pm with a 90 minute tour of this historic facility where you will get to know your 'guards' for the night. You will then be 'locked down' into a prison cell in C Wing, 5 Wing and the Visits Centre, to spend your sentence in the company of your friends. Just like a prisoner, you will have to make your own entertainment and it's BYO everything for your own comfort.

This experience is not for the feint hearted.  Your sentence ends at 8.00am the following day, after which you may have a better idea of what life was like on the inside. Do you think you could spend the entire night?

Conditions apply and participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Bookings essential. Download the Hiring Conditions and Special Sleepover Conditions for more information.
