Vital wartime work of the Bletchley Park code-breakers is revealed

By: stagedoorscribbler - February 5, 2018

Sinclair McKay

Author Sinclair McKay will be at the Chiltern arts Festival this weekend offering his audience a fascinating glimpse of the vital wartime work carried out at Britain’s top secret code-breaking centre at Bletchley Park. 

Accompanied by previously unseen illustrations, his talk is based on his best-selling book The Lost World Of Bletchley Park - the first official illustrated history of the one-time hush-hush establishment. But its story -  once under-wraps - is now gradually being revealed. Sinclair’s previous book, The Secret Life of Bletchley Park, sold more than a quarter of a million copies. 

There have been a number of TV documentaries as well as the popular ITV drama series The Bletchley Circle. Meanwhile Bletchley Park itself has become one of the most popular visitor attraction in the country.

Sinclair McKay says: “The fascination surrounding the achievements at Bletchley Park has grown as more of the story has emerged from the shadows. It's terrific to have the chance to explore that secret world… in even closer detail.”

*The Lost World of Bletchley Park with Sinclair McKay is at 

Chiltern Arts Festival at Mary Le More Church, Wallingford, on Sunday 11th February. More information at www.chilternarts.com
