That is All You Need to Know

Award nominated Idle Motion take you back to 1940s England.

To an eccentric country house which became the melting pot of Britain’s greatest minds; Alan Turing, Gordon Welchman and the thousands of others whose work was the hidden heroism of the war.

In this show Idle Motion delve into the untold stories of Bletchley Park and the remarkable secrets behind how the enigma code was cracked. Using personal testimony, multimedia and inventive staging, this is an insightful, innovative and immersive celebration of those people whose quiet work changed the course of our history.
