Autumn What's On Guide

The official designation date of Milton Keynes was 23 January 1967, and this is the last of three guides produced to tell you about celebratory events and activities happening across Milton Keynes.  The sheer number of events and activities planned and delivered by Milton Keynes organisations, groups, communities and businesses across the city this year has been incredible. 

The birthday year is not over yet; you can still come along to events, exhibitions, tours and trails, outdoor productions and exciting activities.  In September there will be two free events we want to highlight, the Milton Keynes Heritage Open Days, boasting over 70 free events across the city (7-10 September) and the magical Feast of Fire taking place in Central Milton Keynes (21 October).

We are also looking forward to what comes next - looking to the future and the ambition to be a creative and cultured city, and bidding for the European Capital of Culture title for 2023. We’ve hosted the Home Run: Red Bull Racing, four International Festivals, a Rugby World Cup, and the yearlong programme of celebration events for MK50. To help shape the Capital of Culture bid, tell us where you would take a visitor in Milton Keynes to show them what is great or unexpected about the city. Share your views at
