A COURTROOM event which sees nominated people arrested and charged with their crimes (entirely ficticious, of course), placed on trial, taken into custody, photographed and banished to their cells ­— and only released if they can raise bail of £999 from their connections including friends, family and colleagues — will take place at Tavistock Guildhall on Friday, October 14.

This fun courtroom drama ‘Jail and bail Tavistock’ will raise vital funds for Children’s Hospice South West and defendants — including county councillor Debo Sellis and Chris John of Stannary Brewery — will be trialled in front of the notorious ‘no nonsense’, Judge Elliott!

The event runs from 10.15am to 4.30pm.
