Codebreakers – The Story of Enigma
The Germans had entrusted their secret communications to an ingenious ciphering machine, the Enigma, which was portable, easily operated, and could be set up in millions of ways. The codes were used and every one was changed every 24 hours.
The Allies gained invaluable information about troop and aircraft dispositions, orders of battle, U-boat movements, technical development, military intentions and tank and artillery strengths. It is generally reckoned that the intelligence from Enigma shortened the war by about two years.
Please note there is a £2 ticket commission fee included in the price of the ticket.
This event will be held at the Pittville Pump Room.
This show presented by Dr Mark Baldwin is one of the Second World War’s most fascinating stories!
Breathtaking, unique and radiating regency refinement, Pittville Pump Room is monument to the more than 100 years of fame Cheltenham enjoyed as a Spa town, and perhaps the most famous example of regency architecture in the area.
