Fundraising at the Crumlin Road Gaol

After re-opening as a tourist attraction and conference venue, Crumlin Road Gaol has quickly established itself as one of Northern Ireland’s most popular event venues. The Gaol has hosted a number of successful fundraising events including Overnight Paranormal tours, Movie Nights, Banquets and ‘Jailbreak’ challenges.

These fundraising events are particularly suitable for charity and community organisations, schools, sports clubs and corporate fundraisers.



The Parish of Ardboe’s Jailbreak campaign at Crumlin Road Gaol raised an impressive £82.5k. In conjunction with its main sponsor Quinn’s Coach Hire, the promotional build up to the event featured a series of short videos of ‘crimes’ carried out by local members of the parish and were watched by thousands of people online.

For their ‘crimes’, 40 members of the congregation were locked up for the night in the eerie Crumlin Road Gaol and released just in time for a gala dinner with over 200 people the following evening in the Gaol banqueting spaces. Their efforts, helped the local Parish raise a considerable amount of money which would go towards the planned renovations of the local Chapel.
