Only open to LAS members, and all attendees must be student/concession. **Eventbrite link will be posted soon** Be immersed in the criminal world that was the Melbourne City Watch House, as you participate in an experience set in the original cell block inhabited by the likes of Squizzy Taylor, Chopper Read and various other unsavoury characters.
