Christmas Breakout at the Old Prison!

On Sunday the 2nd of December the Friends of the Cotswolds will be holding an exciting fundraiser for the Northleach old prison, the Christmas Breakout! 

Chris Hancock in jail

Come and see Chris Hancock locked up for 24 hours in one of the prison’s ancient cells to raise money for the Prison. Donate now at or pick up a sponsor form at the Old Prison.

Nominate your friends and family to be locked up themselves (for 10 minutes !), experience fascinating rural crafting, hear the amazing Chedworth Silver band or sing carols around our Christmas tree, which was kindly donated by Lord Vestey.

In addition to this enjoy our festive food and drink, with all money raised going to the Northleach Old Prison Rescue. Put it in your calendars, doors open at 2pm and close at 4 on Sunday the 2nd of December.
