Bletchley Park Annual Enigma Reunion

From Bletchley Park's Events page:

Annual Enigma Reunion (with a difference) -
5 Sep 2009 to 6 Sep 2009

The 70th anniversary of the arrival of Alan Turing & Gordon Welchman at Bletchley Park, including the annual reunion of Bletchley Park Veterans.

Here is an opportunity for you to attend the 2009 Enigma Weekend at Bletchley Park.

The event will be held during the weekend of the 5th & 6th September 2009.

As a principal feature of this year’s event there will be a display of Enigma and other cipher machines from private and museum collections throughout Europe and elsewhere – some rare and unusual variants will be on public display. The early 20th century through the cold war years will be represented. Many well known experts, specialists and collectors from the cipher-machine world have already expressed their intent to be here with their machines on display.

There will be guest speakers giving talks, which will be taking place over the two days of the event. So why not come along and see these unique machines and attend one of the talks.

In addition all of the regular, fascinating exhibits at BP will be open to visitors. These include the rebuilds of Colossus and the Bombe, Jack Darrah’s unique collection of Churchillian memorabilia and Block B museum. Our popular guided tours are available to visitors.

Watch the skies above Bletchley Park come alive with a Battle of Britain Memorial Flypast of a Lancaster.
(Saturday 5th September only).

• Over 70 cipher machines on display
• Topical Talks on both days
• Meet Collectors from around the world
