FEAST OF FIRE: Saturday 21 October from 6.30pm in Central Milton Keynes, FREE
To celebrate MK50, Milton Keynes will come together on Saturday 21 October for Feast of Fire.
This magical and fiery event has been created by outdoor arts company Walk the Plank, commissioned by City Club and produced by IF: Milton Keynes International Festival.
The evening will open with the beautiful large-scale ‘Spellbound’ show featuring captivating puppetry, dance and special effects to tell an ancient story of love, loyalty and friendship, then Midsummer Boulevard East will light up with fire sculptures, followed by live music with fire drawings, special effects and fireworks in a grand finale in The Point car park.
An important part of the evening will be ‘The People’s Procession’ made up of 250 citizens who live or work in Milton Keynes – and this is where you can play a part.
The Feast of Fire organisers would like to invite people across Milton Keynes to sign up, or nominate people to take part in the Procession.
They are looking for people of all ages and backgrounds, and would like to include the broadest possible cross-section of people, showing Milton Keynes to be the diverse, vibrant city it has become over the past 50 years.
The People’s Procession will be by torchlight and start at the MK Rose in Campbell Park and work its way on level ground to a traffic-free Midsummer Boulevard and The Point car park.
Participants can be young or old, living or working in the city, a community organiser, a group representative or someone who makes a difference…
