Far from the bright lights of London and other major towns, the staff of Bletchley Park organised much of their own entertainment. As part of this, the Bletchley Park Drama Group staged performances of established plays and wrote their own original material, usually musicals. The surviving Drama Group documentation, including scripts, programmes, rehearsal schedules and financial accounts, provides a fascinating and detailed window into the social side of working at Bletchley Park.
