Merlin welcome Biggin Hill Memorial Museum to the family

Merlinsoft Ltd are very pleased and proud to have supplied a full Venue Management Solution for the newly-opened Biggin Hill Memorial Museum in Kent, England.

Spitfire aircraft and previously unpublished photos of World War 2 pilots and never seen before letters have gone on public display at the museum, with the aim of creating an environment where people can learn about the Battle of Britain and those who lost their lives in the conflict.

Winston Churchill called RAF Biggin Hill his “strongest link” during the Battle of Britain as pilots from the airfield took down over 1,400 Luftwaffe aircraft during World War 2.

Work on the £5.6m project commenced in late 2017 with funds supplied by the Government, National Lottery, Bromley Council and even private donors.

Jemma Johnson Davey, Director of the Museum, said “The aim of this new museum is to offer a new way of telling for what some people would be a familiar story. The history of Biggin Hill goes so much further back than the Battle of Britain. It is one of Britain’s oldest aerodromes and was instrumental to the development of wireless communication technologies.”

In addition to this new museum, Biggin Hill is also home to St George’s RAF Chapel of Remembrance, where those who died working from Biggin Hill are commemorated.

Owen Gleadall, Managing Director of Merlinsoft Ltd said “we have worked with the staff of the new museum over several months to ensure everything was ready for this new opening and I’m pleased to say it has all gone very smoothly. We look forward to seeing it grow and develop over the coming years”.
