Bletchley Park’s Outreach Programme brings a unique part of our learning experience to you. Most of our Outreach Sessions include an Enigma demonstration, but these can also take place as standalone activities or drop-in events taking from around 10 minutes up to around half an hour depending on the interest levels of the participants.
Our Enigma demonstrations involve a real, working Enigma machine as used by the German Army to encrypt and decrypt a variety of messages during World War 2. Our Outreach Officers are knowledgeable about Enigma machines and how they were used, and will be able to answer a broad range of questions about them tailored for audiences with all levels of experience and prior understanding.
We will consider any location for an outreach visit, but travel time will be taken into account when calculating the cost of a visit and all travel and related expenses will be charged additionally to this. Outreach visits are primarily aimed at schools and other educational organisations, but we have also delivered visits to libraries, seaside resorts, independent cinemas and commercial organisations.
Our programme is flexible and can be tailored to your specific requirements, but here are some examples of visit structures that we have provided.
