Natalie Ferris: The Hidden Literary World at Bletchley Park

Bletchley Park, a country estate close to Milton Keynes, became the headquarters of the Government Code and Cypher School in 1939. While it played a crucial role in the government’s wartime intelligence operations, it also inspired the creative lives of its operatives. Dr Natalie Ferris (Edinburgh) will explore the little-known literary world that flourished at Bletchley Park, and ask what hold it continued to have over post-war British culture.
