Bletchley Park is looking for enthusiasts, drama students and amateur actors to become part of history at the home of the codebreakers.

The chosen candidates will take part in filming for the new Bletchley Park experience and record voiceovers for audio installations about codebreaking.

The Bletchley Park Trust and Elbow Productions, the specialist company creating the digital interpretation as part of the £8m Heritage Lottery Funded restoration of Bletchley Park, are looking for between 20 and 30 people to feature in audio and film installations for the newly renovated huts and blocks.

Elbow will film scenes about Bletchley during World War Two, in period costume, over two days in February or March.

Filming will most likely take place over a weekend. Anyone taking part will be asked to attend weekend and or evening rehearsals at the end of January and in early February, plus a daytime or evening costume fitting.

Everyone taking part will be dressed in 1940s costume or uniform with full hair and make-p (costume, hair dressing and professional make-up will be provided).

If you would like to take part, contact Sultana Khanom from Elbow Productions on 0203 432 6314 or
