Easter Weekend Family Activities - D-Day: People

Fri, 19 Apr 2019 — Mon, 22 Apr 2019
From 11:00 to 15:30
Every day over the Easter weekend

Join us for codes, crafts and character activities this Easter weekend, particularly aimed at 5-14 year olds.

6 June, 1944. In hindsight, a momentous day – but what was it really like for different people at the time? Find out about a soldier, a codebreaker and an evacuee on the homefront in 1944. What clues can you find to their identity and role? How do their stories intertwine?

Choose a character and have a go at fun activities and challenges linked to their life – or try them all!

We will be joined by historical educator Nigel Amies, taking on the role of a Morse code instructor, who will enable you to try out some Morse code. This type of training was vital to the work of wartime wireless operators who were listening in to enemy transmissions over the radio from Bletchley Park’s outstations.

Suitable for families with children aged 5-14 – drop in to Block B any time between 11:00 and 15:30. No booking is required. Children should be accompanied by an adult.

Craft activities are included in admission price.

Easter trails with a chocolate treat are available for an additional cost of just £2 per child.
