Camouflage Unit

Join the Camouflage Unit, a team of creative designers and illusionists. With specialist skills in the art of deception and illusion, they were deployed to North Africa during the Second World War.

Try your hand at code-breaking, don desert disguises and witness some mirror ‘magic’, just like the Camouflage Unit did during Operation Bertram in 1942. You'll be able to take part in further devious deceptions and clever camouflage concealments in small groups.

Created in partnership with the immersive theatre and events company Tea Dance for Little People, your family will help the team to create models and take part in a series of deception operations used in the Battle of El-Alamein in Egypt.

The Camouflage Unit Camp is a live and immersive event with actors, suitable for families and children, recommended age 6+. This experience uses non-strobe flash lighting, shadow puppets and optical illusions and recorded sound effects throughout. Please note children 13 years and under must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
