For three days in March, Whitehall’s Cabinet War Rooms will be host to an interactive theatrical event.
Based on stories from the Second World War, you will be asked to solve missions inspired by the real people who worked in this secret government headquarters.
With five different journeys to choose from, become part of the mysterious Department as you take on challenges to uncover the stories hidden underground in the labyrinthine corridors of Churchill War Rooms.
The performances take place in the evenings of Thur 10th to Sat 12th March.
Tickets are for adults only and cost £35 per person – details here.
There are five routes to choose from:
Big decisions come with big diplomatic consequences. Every act counts as you unpick one of the most difficult decisions we had to take against one of our closest allies. What will be the cost to ensure survival?
Infiltrate the offices of the war rooms typists and switchboard operators. Those with privileged access to strategic information, to uncover the puzzle of the missing ships, and all those souls on board. What are we protecting?
Total war is not just waged between two armies but between the hearts and minds of two populations. Everything is in question as you unravel who is behind the propaganda radio network, who they work for, and how did we get a U-Boat without a fight?
Make sure you have a stomach for confrontation as we send you to gather information on the heart-wrenching choices that were made to allow the British rescue effort from Dunkirk. What sacrifices had to be made for the greater good?
All is not what it seems. An unidentified body and falsified strategic documents have been discovered. We need you to uncover the hidden goings on of a mission so mad that it may just have tipped the balance of the war itself. What will you uncover?
