MK50 official launch party

Date Posted:25/01/2017


On 23rd January 2017 MK50 was officially launched with a VIP event at Bletchley Park.  Bletchley Park, Destination Milton Keynes and MK Council worked together to develop an evening event with fizz, cake and entertainment.  After a welcome from Iain Standen, CEO of Bletchley Park, and speeches from the Mayor, the Leader of the Council and Ann Limb, Chair of Destination Milton Keynes, guests were wowed with a light-show involving LED poi, light up outfits and hoverboards.

Block C of Bletchley Park was transformed with a stage, 60s backdrop and memorabilia, and filled with drinks and canapes for over 300 guests.  VIPs included Councillors, business people from Milton Keynes and beyond, representatives from neighbouring local authorities and guests from arts and culture organisations developing and delivering work for the MK50 programme.  There were two film crews present, and the MK50 party was broadcast live on BBC Look East.
