A vintage war time Christmas with Bletchley Park

Isabel Hicks | Dec 2018

Take your Cultural Passport and discover a real life adventure on your doorstep! Visit Bletchley Park over the Christmas period and step back to the 1940’s when Alan Turing and his team created a machine which cracked the World War II Enigma code!

Located in the original hut, 11A, The Bombe Breakthrough explores the challenges Enigma posed, and how the code breaking machine was built, using oral archives and historical, wartime, objects including decrypted Nazi messages!

While you are there, drop in on Santa in the Vintage Christmas Grotto where every child will be given a gift* and there will be festive crafts and music while you wait!

Bletchley Park is one of 17 cultural venues and libraries participating in Pedalling Culture’s Cultural Passport campaign. To complete the Cultural Passport challenge, participants simply need to visit and explore FOUR of these venues,* between 1st December and Sunday 6th January 2019, receiving a stamp in their passports at each site.

All completed passports will be entered into a prize draw to win some fantastic prizes, including a £100 intu Gift Card.

*Tickets for Santa’s Grotto at Bletchley Park must be booked 24 hours in advance.
