Electrosonic Helps Bring to Life the Secret Wartime Tunnels at Dover Castle

War Time Tunnels

War Time Tunnels

When English Heritage opened the new attraction at Dover Castle, “Operation Dynamo: Rescue from Dunkirk,” it deployed audio-visual and show control technology from AV systems integrator Electrosonic to recreate the drama of World War II’s Dunkirk evacuation.

Situated in the network of 60-meter long secret tunnels, 26-meters underground behind the famous White Cliffs of Dover, the attraction makes extensive use of AV technology to present the events of May 26 to June 4, 1940. In the highlight of the attraction, 23 projectors create giant images that run the entire length of the space augmented by spectacular lighting effects.
