THE secret world of wartime spies and codes will be revealed to audiences at a North-East theatre next month.
Author Sinclair McKay is bringing his show The Lost World of Bletchley Park to Darlington Civic Theatre on Friday, October 7, at 7.30pm.
The fascination surrounding this most secret of government operations has become increasingly widespread as more and more details have emerged over the years.
Accompanied by illustrations never seen before from the Bletchley Park archive, the talk partners the publication of the first official illustrated history of the World War II code-breaking centre.
The success of Mr McKay’s previous book, The Secret Life of Bletchley Park – a quarter of a million copies sold to date – and a number of TV documentaries about the birthplace of modern computers, has also seen a similarly dramatic increase in visitors to Bletchley Park itself, now one of the most popular visitor attractions in the country.
He said: “The fascination surrounding the achievements at Bletchley Park has grown as more of the story has emerged from the shadows. It's terrific to have the chance to explore that secret world in even closer detail.”
Tickets, priced £12 and £14, including a theatre restoration levy, are on sale from the box office on 01325-486555, or by visiting darlingtoncivic.co.uk
