The Prisoners on Långholmen


Prisoner for a day, captivated for life!

A Captivating Game

The suspected criminals are brought by the guard to ”Långholmen’s Court”. The Court is located in the cellar of the old Spinning House. Our judge is often not so merciful to felons and the sentence is usually life imprisonment in Långholmen! When the sentence is passed, it is time for washing, change of clothes (striped!) and registration.

One chance for freedom still remains…

If the prisoners manage to collect a bail which is set at 700,000 riksdaler, they will be released. The prisoners are split up into different gangs such as the Jailbirds, the Squealers and the Beagle boys who compete against each other. Each gang is given their own moneybag to collect money in and a game plan. The gang leader decides who is best suited to carry out each task. At each station there is a screw/station host (a person from your group). The screws are tough but corrupt and can hand out points for style. Thus, it is a question of charming the screws, perhaps with a battle song or by going smartly in line. When the gang has tried all the stations, which are about seven, it is once again time to meet the Judge. (In the summer most of the stations are outdoors.) The gang that succeeds in collecting the bail, gathering the most style points and answering correctly to more chance questions, wins.

Food & Drink

In the Finken Pub it is now appropriate to treat the thirsty prisoners to “bread and water”, choose the strength to your taste (not included in the price). The event concludes with a prison banquet with everyone still dressed in stripes in one of our pleasant rooms. Here, it is usually exciting to find out how it has been for the different gangs, maybe the winning team will sing their battle song!
