Overview
Bletchley Park's secret D-Day role revealed in a new immersive exhibition

Preview showings from April 2019
Official opening TBC May 2019

75 years on, the full scale of Bletchley Park’s top secret impact on the planning and implementation of D-Day is to be revealed in a new immersive cinematic experience, D-Day: Interception, Intelligence, Invasion.

Featuring a specially commissioned film projected on a 22m screen, the audio-visual experience will be held on site in the newly restored Teleprinter Building where hundreds of thousands of intercepted messages first arrived at Bletchley Park from secret listening posts across the UK, and Ultra intelligence was transmitted to Allied headquarters.

The exhibition will explain the vital importance of the ULTRA intelligence produced at Bletchley Park, and the impact it had on one of the most important military operations of the twentieth-century,

Bletchley Park is delighted to have BT, whose wartime history is closely intertwined with the Codebreaking site, as the exclusive and sole corporate partner of the restoration of Teleprinter Building and the exclusive and sole partner of the exhibition. It was General Post Office (now BT) engineers who managed Bletchley Park’s secure communications network and delivered innovative information technology such as Colossus, the world’s first electronic digital computer.

Entrance to the exhibition will be included in the general admission ticket price.

BT are the exclusive and sole corporate partner of the restoration of Teleprinter Building and the exclusive and sole partner of the exhibition.

The Teleprinter Building restoration project has had additional kind support from The Linbury Trust, The Gosling Foundation, The Hobson Charity and the Wolfson Foundation.
