THE IMITATION GAME: The Exhibition
Take to the red carpet and step inside the Oscar-winning movie, The Imitation Game, in Bletchley Park's stunning exhibition.
The exhibition is staged in the rooms within the iconic Victorian Mansion where key scenes were filmed.
The biopic of Bletchley Park Codebreaker Alan Turing opened in cinemas in November 2014 and stars a host of British acting talent including Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley.
Entering the exhibition on a red carpet in the Billiard Room, you first see costumes worn by the stars, Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley as Alan Turing and Joan Clarke, as well as the boys at Sherborne School, where a young Alan was played by Alex Lawther. Once inside the Ballroom itself, pose for a photo in the very bar seen in the film, and discover more behind the scenes gems.
The array of items on display will include the Enigma intercepts Alan Turing stuffs into his socks and trousers to sneak them off site, the scribbles made by John Cairncross (played by Downton Abbey’s Allen Leech) and the prototype Bombe machine Turing names Christopher, after his first love and created especially for the film.
