In January 2017, Milton Keynes celebrated its 50th Birthday. The new town was born with an Act of Parliament in 1967 which approved the building of a new community of 250,000 people covering 21,869 acres of Buckinghamshire farmland and villages. It has become the largest and most ambitious of the British new towns.
Living Archive MK used this anniversary as a focus to capture the stories and memories on film, of Milton Keynes people – from original residents to early pioneers, and the newly arrived. This exhibition provides a glimpse into the lives of a cross-section of Milton Keynes people. It is accompanied by an exhibition of archive images. to find out more about the whole project visit www.mkpeoplesstories.co.uk
