Description

The New Towns Heritage Research Network (hosted by MKCDC and partnered by MKC) is delighted to invite you to a free showing of Living Archive MK's film "Make no little Plans" at City Discovery Centre on 23 Jan at 7pm.

Milton Keynes today is a thriving multi-cultural city of nearly a quarter of a million people, yet 50 years ago the site was largely occupied by farmers’ fields where crops were grown and cattle grazed.

Just why and how did this agricultural area of North Bucks get transformed into the largest and most ambitious of Britain’s new towns?

This film is a story of Milton Keynes’ early years, told by those who were part of the Development Corporation, tasked with its planning and development. It’s a story of audacity and brashness, of teamwork and tussles, of utopian dreams and a bold vision.
