On Sunday 3rd November 2019, visitors to Bodmin Jail will get the chance to experience the highs and lows of prison life for FREE one last time before the jail closes for six months to allow construction to finish on the brand, new attraction. And to top it all off, a silent auction featuring some iconic memorabilia from the original jail experience is now online on jumblebee.co.uk/bodminjailmemorabilia to allow enthusiasts to take home a piece of Bodmin Jail. All funds raised will go to Cornwall Hospice Care, the charity that runs two adult hospices in Cornwall.
A warden’s baton and hat, a prison mangle, a condemned cell plaque and a Naval Wing sign are just a few of the 32 lots up for sale in the auction, which ends at 10pm on Sunday 3rd November. Visitors can book FREE tickets online in advance to guarantee entry to take one last look around the jail and view the lots in person before making a bid in the auction.
