We don’t know about you, but we couldn’t have been more excited when we heard that EH mag favourite Benedict Cumberbatch was taking on the lead role in the sure-fire cinema smash hit ‘The Imitation Game’.

And the good news doesn’t end there – fans can visit the home of code breaking itself!

Visitors to Bletchley Park can now go behind the scenes of the movie at The Imitation Game, The Exhibition, in the very room where the film’s bar scenes were filmed on location at Bletchley Park.

Entering the exhibition on a red carpet in the Billiard Room, visitors first see costumes worn by the stars, Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley as Alan Turing and Joan Clarke, as well as the boys at Sherborne School, where a young Alan was played by Alex Lawther. Once inside the Ballroom itself, fans can pose for a photo in the very bar seen in the film, and discover more behind the scenes gems – where do we sign?!

Benedict, who plays Codebreaker Alan Turing said “Filming at Bletchley Park was amazing. The parts where we were at Bletchley Park were magical moments in the filming schedule. It really was very special. You really feel like you’re playing slightly with ghosts. It’s nerve-racking, fictionalising what happened.”

Dorothy’s intellectual junk shop takes up residence at KK Outlet throughout December. Expect a weird and wonderful selection of music, film, literature, architecture and art ephemera – perfect for the eccentric intellectuals among us!

 

The UK based studio now produces conceptual prints, products and artworks that are sold and exhibited internationally. Dorothy’s work has been described by the press both as ‘beautifully clever’ and ‘terribly wicked’.

Enjoying pride of place in the gallery exhibition space are the slightly weird (but very wonderful) Rock ‘N Roll Zoo range which is inspired by the titles of songs from the history of popular music, and ‘Game Map’ which is the latest imaginary city in Dorothy’s best selling Street Map range, and features the titles of over 500 video games from the history of gaming. Dorothy will also be exhibiting their Casualties of War sculptures and Home Shit Home artwork (just returned from being exhibited in the US).

KK Outlet’s shop shelves are choc-a-block full with Dorothy’s mirthful mix of gifts, collectables and art. Unique and affordable gifts are available, priced from £10 – £1,000; this is the perfect place to do a bit of exclusive Christmas shopping!
