Propaganda: Hits from History


The Nuclear Option - ticket for the whole evening. Does not include bunker entrance fees: Adults £7.50 / Children £5.50 / Family £18 (payable in cash on the door)

Lakeside Theatre and University of Essex drama students in partnership with Index on Censorship have created a short immersive performance, Propaganda: Hits from History, tracing the political rhetoric that makes up propaganda. Inspired by some surprisingly persuasive speeches from throughout history – from McCarthy to Churchill and from Kellyanne Conway to Stalin. The performance complements the panel discussion ‘Picking Apart Propaganda’ with Index on Censorship looking at how and why propaganda is used to persuade the public.

This event is part of The Nuclear Option, an evening of unearthly underground delights. Join us as we take over the Kelvedon Hatch Secret Nuclear Bunker, the Government’s Cold War ‘hideaway’. This unique and unusual space was operational from 1952 right through to 1994, and is now a fascinating underground museum open to all.
