Developed in the 1960s, Milton Keynes is dubbed the “New City” and was built as a new town to help with population overspill in London. Since its creation, it has become known for its historic sites, music, and culture - including Bletchley Park Mansion, Willen Lake, and the Concrete Cows in Bancroft. In 1999, after a 29-year campaign to bring a new performance venue to the town, Milton Keynes Theatre opened. It has a ceiling which can be lowered to create a more intimate space for smaller productions, and its diverse space has welcomed tours of musicals, plays, opera, and dance, as well as a Christmas pantomime. With exciting UK tours of Sister Act and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory coming to the city in 2022-23, theatre fans are spoilt for choice when it comes to shows in Milton Keynes.
