Big Geek Day Out: Bletchley Park – Are you coming?

Posted on July 13th, 2009 by Neil Crosby. Filed under Uncategorized.

It’s less than a week until the second Big Geek Day Out, and I’ve only just realised that I’ve only mentioned it on twitter so far. Whoops.

So, here’s the story. This saturday (18th July), I’m organising a “Big Geek Day Out” to Bletchley Park,the home of high-level British Intelligence during World War II. They’ve got Enigma machines, and apparently are fantastic about taking them out of the cases and letting people get up close and personal to photograph them. So far more than thirty people have said they’ll be coming, and if you’ve fancied visiting Bletchley Park before but never got round to it then you should come along as well.

That’s the whole idea of a Big Geek Day Out really — one person decides they’d like to go somewhere, they tell people they’ll be going on a certain date, and then people come along. It gets people going to places that they’ve been meaning to go to for ages but have never actually made it to.

So come to Bletchley Park. Becca and I will be arriving at about 10:30am, and we’ll hang around the front entrance until about 11am. If people want to explore the grounds with us then that’s cool, but likewise if people want to do their own thing for the day then that’ll be equally awesome.

Oh, and don’t forget to buy a ticket for Bletchley Park before you go (tickets are £8.50 online and let you go back as many times as you want for a year, or £10 if you buy them on the door). It’s sure to be a fun day out, so come along!
