Open your doors over the MK Birthday Weekend

Date Posted:14/11/2016

Shake off the January blues in 2017 and join up with your neighbours, friends and family for Milton Keynes 50th Birthday weekend on the 20-23 January.

There are already over 20 events happening around MK for the birthday weekend: The Young Heritage Hunters Trail, MK Through the Lens film screening at Odeon MK1, Wolverton Town Trail app launch, a Gyosi Art Walk, and more – but why stop there!

Living Archive is inviting Milton Keynes communities to join in and be part of the actual birthday weekend of Milton Keynes. This can be done with an event or activity in your community, organisation or venue for the locals of MK to enjoy; it’s all about having a good time!

For organisations that charge entry, Living Archive are asking if you could open your doors for free for everyone to enjoy or, if you can’t, offer some free tickets (and slices of cake).  

Living Archive MK are co-ordinating the Birthday Weekend events.  For more information and to register your event, please email:

You can also download a handy events toolkit from the MK50 website:
