Alan Turing’s Wilmslow
March 2 @ 7:15 pm - 9:00 pmFree
A free public meeting has been arranged on Alan Turing’s Wilmslow.
Turing, is arguably Wilmslow’s most famous resident, having lived here in Wilmslow from 1950 to 1954. Yet the work he did in this short period is having a profound effect on the world we live in today.
Jonathan Swinton author of “Alan Turing’s Manchester” will speak at Wilmslow High School on Wednesday 2nd March at 7.15 pm for 7.30 pm and is being co-hosted by Wilmslow Historical Society and Wilmslow Civic Trust.
The meeting is part of the Turing Town Initiative which has already sponsored a unique portrait of Turing now in Wilmslow Library.
Project Chair Cllr Jon Kelly said, “ There is a growing feeling that we should celebrate and commemorate his time and achievements here in Wilmslow. At the meeting we will being launching a two-month long consultation exercise to hear people’s innovative ideas how we might do this, ideas big and small that could be pursued by individuals, clubs or organisations. Watch out, both online and when out and about in the town, for details of how you can participate.”
