    * By Hugh Foss
    During the Second World War Hugh Foss worked at Bletchley Park, home to the
    famous codebreakers, and the birthplace of modern computing.  Whilst there
    he taught Scottish Countly Dancing and is now well known as a prolific
    writer of Scottish Country Dances.
    Bletchley Park, also known as STATION X, is today a heritage site full of
    exhibitions and memorabilia and houses working examples of Enigma and other
    coding machines.
    Bring a picnic ( or you can buy refreshments) and join us for dancing on the
    lawn in front of the Mansion, the centrepiece of  STATION X, to celebrate
    the works of Hugh Foss.
     Your ticket gains you entry to the full site, so why not come early and
    make a day of it?
    KILTS and SASHES would look nice!
    Wet weather alternative on site.                  Phone Jan on 01908 372595
    Usual admission to Bletchley Park is £5.
    A limited number of complimentary tickets are available for dancers.
