Are you brave enough to spend time at Bodmin Jail after dark? Bodmin Jail is a popular historical tourist attraction down here in Cornwall, but their After Dark experiences mean that you can experience the jail in a way that you usually wouldn’t get to.
This is exactly what I will be doing this month, along with some other brave souls. I will be writing about it on both my own blog and the Bodmin Jail blog, which I also write for. I’ll tell you how you can experience it yourself through a giveaway competition shortly.
I actually interviewed Mark Rablin who runs the After Dark experiences at the jail for their blog recently. If you wanted to get to know a bit more about the man behind the nights, visit the Bodmin Jail blog. Whilst I enjoyed a delicious lunch there, I chatted to Mark about the After Dark experiences and what they are actually like.
Basically on the evening you arrive at 8.45pm and enjoy a 3 course meal with the others who are joining you for the experience. This works as a good ice breaker and fuels everyone for the night ahead. You do different workshops with Mark through the night and get to explore the jail. He will tutor you in the basics of Reiki and energy management before you enter the jail. The event lasts until 5am the next morning.
Included in the price that you pay for an After Dark experience is a 3 course meal, souvenirs from the night, Signed certificate. A voucher for a discount on return visits, unlimited tea and coffee on the night and a free family pass for a day visit of the attraction.
If you don’t win the tickets for the After Dark night, you can still book yourself on to one of them. To do so pop to the Bodmin Jail site, you can book online and there are various dates to choose from. The usual cost for this is £90 per person.
Having visited the jail before in the daytime and feeling how cold it gets, I would definitely recommend lots of warm layers if you do decide to have an After Dark experience! I suspect the unlimited hot drinks will come in handy ;)
I’m looking forward to my own experience and telling you all about it afterwards…. I may be a teeny bit nervous though!
