Join us for an evening dedicated to Alan Turing, code-breaker and father of modern computing.

In the 2014 biopic The Imitation Game, Benedict Cumberbatch plays Cambridge mathematics alumnus Alan Turing, hired by British intelligence during the Second World War to decipher the Nazis’ Enigma code—which cryptanalysts had previously thought unbreakable. Turing and his team, including Kiera Knightly as Joan Clarke, race against the clock to crack the code and in turn guide the Allied forces out of the darkest days of the war

The screening will be followed by a Q&A, hosted by Top Secret exhibition curator Dr Elizabeth Bruton. Here we’ll be delving deeper into the life and work of Alan Turing, highlighting and correcting the film's inaccuracies, and exploring the legacy of a man credited with one of the greatest individual contributions towards the fall of Hitler’s Germany.

Speakers include:

Tony Comer, Departmental Historian, GCHQ
Erica Munro, Exhibitions Manager, Bletchley Park

Other speakers will be announced closer to the time of the event.

Cost: £8
