An exclusive sneak peek at the new Wrongful Convictions show at York Dungeon

 
 
 
 

A taste of justice

We had a taste of justice - Dungeon style - this month, as we stepped in to help launch The York Dungeon’s new Wrongful Convictions show with a preview event for local media.
 
The show, which ran for two weeks starting on Saturday 8 April, introduced a new character to the Dungeon in the form of The Barrister, who went head to head with the attraction’s resident Judge in a tongue-in-cheek display of 17th Century justice.
 
It seemed only fitting that we brought a few modern law experts in to find out how 17th Century justice compares to the modern day system, and staff from local law firm Coles Solicitors were brave enough to accept the challenge! Local journalists including Dougie Weeke from Vale Radio (pictured centre) joined members of the Coles team to experience the fun and thrills of The York Dungeon for themselves, have an exclusive sneak peek at the new Wrongful Convictions show and interview the characters in their courtroom.
 
Overall, the event was a great success for The York Dungeon, with coverage across the web and a number of local radio stations. Minster FM were taken with the strange case of the Sheriff and the snake, and BBC Radio York were so intrigued by the new show that they dedicated a slot in their afternoon show to explore comparisons between justice in the 17th Century and today.
 
Oh, and Partners director Karen was accused of being a witch. We’ll leave you to decide whether or not that was a Wrongful Conviction…
