Heritage Open Day, Sunday 17th September – 11am to 4pm

Bawdsey Radar Museum will be welcoming visitors and offering free entry on Sunday the 17th of September as part of the national Heritage Open Day event.

Come and find out what amazing technology was developed at this top-secret location before the Second World War, and how we use it every day in the 21st century.

Trace the scientific development of radar and its pivotal role in providing “the eyes of the few”, the RAF fighter pilots who won the Battle of Britain, and radar’s crucial role throughout World War Two.

Local broadcaster and presenter Georgy Jamieson, who has recently become a patron of Bawdsey Radar Museum, will be popping into the museum on the day. Georgy is keen to meet visitors and will be recording some of their stories.

You can also find out about volunteering, whether it’s opening and running the museum, researching the museum collection and history of RAF Bawdsey or exciting digital developments – there are a lot of opportunities for volunteers at the museum.

On the open day there will be existing volunteers to talk to about the different roles. Whether you have a few hours or the occasional free day, it is very rewarding being part of a museum that celebrates the birthplace of radar.
