Bletchley Park Wins Award for Most InAVative Visitor Attraction
Last night’s InAVative Awards saw Bletchley Park take home the prize for Most InAVative Visitor Attraction.
The InAVative awards celebrate talent, skill and creativity across all aspects of the AV industry and Bletchley was up against some stiff competition including: The Battle of Bannockburn Visitor Centre and Denmark’s Maritime Museum.
Until the 1980s, Bletchley Park was Britain’s ‘best kept secret’. Work at the Codebreaking centre in Buckinghamshire during WW2 broke the Germans’ codes and ciphers, including the legendary Enigma, providing the allies with information that is said to have helped shorten the war by two years.
After an extensive restoration project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Bletchley Park Visitor Centre reopened last summer to international acclaim. The Bletchley craze has continued into the new year, buoyed with the recent opening of The Imitation Game and Benedict Cumberbatch’s portrayal of Bletchley’s Alan Turing.
After completing the Masterplan in 2012, Event was appointed to deliver the design, working closely with the team at Bletchley Park and AV specialists DJ Willrich.
Congratulations on the well-earned win!
