Breaking the Code @ People's Theatre, Newcastle upon Tyne | England | United Kingdom

At the height of the Second World War, brilliant young mathematician Alan Turing was a key figure in breaking the Enigma code used by the Nazis. In the aftermath of victory, Turing returned to academic life but his dreams were left unfulfilled as his private sexual life fell afoul of social attitudes in 1950s Britain.

Whitemore’s gripping drama is a tender portrait of a modern tragedy.

Mottistone and Paget: Partners in Design

13:00 – 14:00
John Seely & Paul Paget were brought together both in a life partnership and in a professional architectural practice. Both men were Surveyors of St Paul’s Cathedral and together they oversaw some of the most significant architectural additions to the building of the twentieth century. John was the eldest surviving son of the 1st Baron Mottistone. Born in 1899, he read architecture at Trinity College, Cambridge, where he met Paul Edward Paget. The son of a bishop, Paget was an extrovert and entertainer. The pair became inseparable: in Paget’s words, ‘it was just the marriage of two minds … we became virtually one person’. The pair went into business in 1922 and lived and worked together. This talk will look at the lives of the two men, how their personalities complemented one another and how the fruits of their partnership are reflected in the fabric of St Paul’s Cathedral.
