VIDEO: Support hospice appeal if you dare

Prepare for a scare because the latest major event in the Save Our Hospice campaign gives you the chance to spend the night in Lancaster Castle’s former prison.

Nightmare On A Wing is the first ever opportunity for members of the public to see previously unseen parts of HMP Lancaster Castle.

St John’s Hospice has exclusive access for one night only and has teamed up with After Dark Entertainment for a truly unique event on Saturday, April 5.

As part of The Visitor and Lancaster Guardian campaign to raise £500,000 for the Slyne Road charity the hospice has limited places available for people to spend a night at the prison with a fully interactive scare experience.

This one off-event will include an overnight stay on A Wing with interactive thrills, access to parts of HMP Lancaster Castle never seen by the public and a midnight feast.

The event will run until 4am.

An individual registration fee of £40 is required together with a sponsorship pledge of £100.

There are only 120 places available for a night in aid of the Save Our Hospice campaign that you’ll never forget.
