The Baldock Festival committee is proud to host one of the curators from Bletchley Park Trust who will delivery a talk covering the history of Bletchley Park’s Operations during World War II and the highlight of the evening and opportunity to see and experience a demonstration of a real, working, Enigma machine.
Bletchley Park is a place of exceptional historical importance. It remains highly relevant to our lives today and for the future. It is the home of British codebreaking and a birthplace of modern information technology. It played a major role in World War Two, producing secret intelligence which had a direct and profound influence on the outcome of the conflict.
Refreshments will be available at the Arts and Heritage Centre
After the very successful Baldock’s Voices in last year’s Festival, time has moved on to 1956 when Albert, Maud and Ivy reminisce about life and times in Baldock during and after the first world war. With appropriate slides and music!
After extensive renovations over a period of months the Arts and Heritage Centre is re-opening. New windows have been put in in Thomas Pryor Hall and the Gallery/Coffee shop area has been remodelled with sparkling new toilets including one with access for all. There is also now access to the Museum which will become a fine Heritage space.
Free tea, coffee and cake will be served if you would like to pop in.
Also see the Pop-in Concert.
