Walking Festival: Tales from the City Literary Walk

Saturday 11 May (other dates available)
Suitable for all ages

This event is in the past. This page is for information purposes only.

In collaboration with Milton Keynes Lit Fest we're delighted to include this walk as part of the Walking Festival 2024. 

Starting from and finishing at MK Gallery - you will hear how Milton Keynes has a thousand tales to tell. Not just its own history, but the moments in countless lives for which it has been either catalyst or backdrop. Join us for a literary walk around CMK to hear funny, poignant, tender, euphoric, apocalyptic and downright crazy stories and poems selected from the very best of local writing.

The writers – whose work has appeared in MK Lit Fest’s #MinK series of anthologies or been included in their online seasonal ‘Dreams for’ events – will take you on an urban stroll from Milton Keynes Gallery, spinning their tales to bring the city to vibrant life.

Meet at MK Gallery, Midsummer Boulevard
