Codebreakers – the story of Enigma is at the Connaught Studio at 7.30 pm tonight (Thursday February 26th).
Allied code breakers and their work during WWII
Dr Mark Baldwin presents a fascinating talk on the allied code breakers, whose work at Bletchley Park provided invaluable information during WWII. Using imaginative new mathematical techniques, they were able to decode thousands of German secret messages which had been encoded on Enigma machines and it is generally surmised that this intelligence shortened the war by about two years.
The evening includes an opportunity for questions and a hands-on demonstration of a 4-rotor Enigma machine, which was made for U-Boat service in 1944 and features in the film The Imitation Game.
Tickets are £12.50 but the event is sold out – for returns call 01903 206206.
