New MK50 What’s On Guide has your summer sorted

Date Posted:23/05/2017

The Summer MK50 What’s on Guide has arrived! The new 18-page booklet is filled to the brim with MK50 events taking place across the city from May to August in celebration of Milton Keynes’ 50th birthday year.

There will be something happening every weekend in June and almost every weekend in July and August, so you certainly won’t run out of things to do this summer!

It’s hard to just mention a few events, but the most highly anticipated has to be the Let’s Party Like it’s 1967 weekend. On the 23 – 25 June, MK50 parties will be popping up all over the city, including the Wolverton MK50 celebration on 25 June at the Western Road Recreation Ground.

Another one to get excited about is the largest historical re-enactment Milton Keynes has ever seen at the two-day Festival of History by Heritage MK. For a different kind of trip down memory lane, visit Newport Pagnell for the 1940s vintage weekend, or how about celebrating MK’s more recent milestone with one of the greatest Rugby 7s festival, MKRuggerfest.

If you want to get fitter for the warmer weather, you can join the Redway Runners for their ‘Through the Decades’ series, or cycle 50km or 50 miles for the British Heart Foundation MK Bike Ride.

Whilst on the subject of cycling, the British National Youth Circuit Championships will be taking place in Central MK as well as live BMX demonstrations. Red Bull will also be revving up a need for speed with their Red Bull Racing event at Middleton Hall with show cars, simulators and pit stop challenges.

On the best summer days, Milton Keynes’ green open spaces can’t be beaten. Join the Parks Trust for the MK Festival of Nature; Art in the Park, a spectacular multicultural arts festival, and of course the Park’s Trusts Proms in Campbell Park and Open Air Film Festival. Remember the giants? They’ll be back as well for the Festival of Giants!
