Off Duty: High Spirits in Low Times
- 30 March 2017 — 1 January 2019 *on now
Long and unpredictable shifts often impacted on the health and wellbeing of staff at Bletchley Park during World War Two. In order to keep staff fit and well and able to work, senior management came to the decision that facilities and a welfare programme were needed for when they weren’t working. From sporting events and plays, to trips to the cinema and US dances, visit our exhibition Off Duty: High Spirits in Low Times to find out about the recreational activities that the Codebreakers and their colleagues enjoyed on and off site.
