The Imitation Game: The Exhibition

Exciting new exhibition to open at Bletchley Park on 10 November, about the film, THE IMITATION GAME.

To complement the release of THE IMITATION GAME in UK cinemas on 14 November, Bletchley Park will open a major new exhibition, taking visitors behind the scenes of the highly anticipated movie. THE IMITATION GAME: The Exhibition opens 10 November 2014 and runs until 1 November 2015 and is situated  in the very room where the film's bar scenes were filmed on location at Bletchley Park.

Entering the exhibition on a red carpet in the Billiard Room, visitors will 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, fans can 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.
