This once-in-a-lifetime occurrence, certainly calls for a celebration and being at the heart of Milton Keynes, we want to put on a Royal Bank Holiday programme that will bring joy to everyone and get Milton Keynes in a celebratory spirit.’
Outside of centre:mk guests can enjoy the ‘Jubilee Parade’ which will start at 10.30am on Thursday 2nd June. The parade will be on Midsummer Boulevard, finishing at Campbell Park. There will be a road closure in place on Midsummer Boulevard during the parade.
