Jailbreak 2016: live on Smoke Radio

By Oliver Browning

Smoke Radio will be hosting live coverage for all 36 hours of this year’s Jailbreak event, as students from the University of Westminster try to raise as much money as possible for charity.

The rules of Jailbreak are simple. The teams of students have 36 hours to get as far away from university (in our case – Westminster’s Marylebone campus) as possible, without spending any money.

Participants can travel in any way they like. They could run as far away as they can, or maybe choose to hitch a ride across the country in the back of someone’s car. However, tactics like these are unlikely to win the Jailbreak, as they’re not going to get you very far.

The more successful Jailbreakers will have planned for this weekend’s challenge in advance. Of course, we don’t know exactly what Westminster’s participants have up their sleeves, but it will be exciting to find out!

Make sure you don’t miss a moment of this year’s event by tuning into Smoke Radio. Starting at 9:30 on Saturday morning and finishing at 23:30 on Sunday night, we will have non-stop live coverage of the Jailbreak.

Throughout the weekend we will keep you updated with live tracking of all the teams, letting you know exactly where they are in the world, where they have been and where they want to end up. We’ll also have special guests and interviews with those closely involved in the Jailbreak, so make sure you don’t miss it.

This year’s event is going to be one of the biggest yet and it’s all for a great cause. Students are raising money for ‘Action Against Hunger’. The charity saves the lives of malnourished children and provides families with access to safe water and good nutrition.

So tune into Smoke Radio from 9:30 on Saturday morning to support Westminster students as they look to get as far away from university as possible!
