During the Second World War, thousands of apparently secret sites across Britain were turned over to the war effort and either requisitioned, repurposed or rebuilt with their precise role often concealed even from those living close by. Author Colin Philpott has studied the stories of these sites for his third book Secret Wartime Britain published last autumn, which contains the testimonies of people who worked at these secret sites. Copies of his book will be available to purchase from the Museum shop for Colin to sign during the event. There will also be an opportunity to visit the Museum of
Enfield’s Enfield at War exhibition after hours. Tickets: £5
