Fathers Day Treats

It’s Fathers Day on Sunday 17th June!

Notoriously the most difficult member of the family to buy gifts for – why not treat Dad to delicious meal in our Governors Hall restaurant; we’ll be offering a great deal for two from our Steak & Shank menu, which includes a bottle of house wine!

Hole in One

Charity Golf Day

‘The Inmates’ had a great day out supporting Bodmin Rotary’s Charity Golf Day; raising funds in aid of research into Motor Neurone Disease.

MND is currently incurable, and is characterised by weakness & wasting of the limbs – it’s a cruel illness, exasperated by the fact that although the limbs, speech or torso may not respond from signals from the brain to operate, the brain remains fully functional. The average life expectancy for the commonest form of MND is 2-5 years from onset of symptoms.

Finishing the day placed 4th out of 40, ‘The Inmates’ have helped give a boost to the MNDAssoc. Cornwall Branch, and to those persons in the County that have to live with the disease.

Well done to all involved!

Artist in Residence

Meet the latest addition to our Jail inmates –

talented Artist in Residence Jess Marlton: Jess recently graduated from Falmouth University with a First in Authoritative Illustration.

Her work during this time focused on monsters and it was here that she developed the theme of whimsical macabre.  Through the medium of paper cutting, Jess uses the figure of the monster to investigate what we consider to be monstrous, and ultimately to invite the viewer to question who the monster is.

Jess’ work at Bodmin Jail focuses on the prison’s infamous inmates as well as Cornish folklore.  The paper cuts produced in residence are designed to carry tales of the prison and to address new ways of story telling.
