The Friends of Chippenham Museum have arranged a showing of this fascinating documentary film, which will include a Q&A session with Norman Parker, history advisor for the film and WWII Spitfire engineer.

Secret Spitfires is the remarkable story of how WWII Spitfire fighter aircraft were built in secret right in the heart of Southern England.

It has taken 75 years for this story to come to light. It tells of how hundreds of girls, boys, women, elderly men and a handful of engineers built the iconic fighter plane the Spitfire, in secret, hidden in sheds, depots, garages, barns and even a hotel. So hidden, Hitler’s spies couldn’t find them and have them bombed.

Proceeds will be going to military charities and the Friends of Chippenham Museum.
