Film Screening - Make No Little Plans: The City Builders' Stories (free)
January 23, 2018 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM at Odeon Cinema
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.
