Hosting Events in Our Parks

The parks are ideal places to hold your own event, from community picnics to sporting events; to large concerts and festivals. Milton Keynes’ parks host over 500 events each year and we welcome requests from groups and organisations to organise their own events and activities in our parks.  We work with many groups to hold safe and successful parkland events.

To stage your own event, read an organiser’s pack and the rate card, and then contact the Events Team on 01908 233600 or

All events and organised activities need an event licence, this is so we can help ensure that the event is safely organised and doesn’t clash with other activities taking place in the parks. An event licence gives permission to host your event and lists the terms and conditions that organisers need to abide by to protect event participants, other park users and the parks themselves.

  • Willen Lake South

    Willen Lake is Milton Keynes’ most popular park. Visitors take part in watersports activities, go cycling, enjoy the playground, try the high ropes course or simply picnic along Willen’s shores. It’s a great place to entertain all ages of family and friends, whether it’s a visit to the café or restaurant, a stroll, trying a beginners’ course in sailing or hiring a pedalo or bike.

  • Tree Cathedral

    Contrary to what many believe, Milton Keynes does have its own cathedral. But like the city itself, this cathedral is unique - made from bark and leaves rather than bricks and mortar.

  • Campbell Park

    Located at the heart of Milton Keynes, Campbell Park hosts many of Milton Keynes’ major festivals and events. Its imaginative mix of formal gardens, water features, woodland and open pasture mean it’s an ideal spot to enjoy the changing seasons.
