MKBLP attends civic celebration to welcome His Majesty The King

Add to Calendar

Representing Milton Keynes Business Leaders Partnership and our diverse business community, I was proud to see so many local people lining the streets of Central Milton Keynes, collaboratively celebrating this civic honour, and to share in the recognition of everything that makes our city such an exciting place to be. 

Since The late Queen granted us CITY status as part of her Platinum Jubilee honours last May, Milton Keynes has celebrated its success in gaining the recognition it undeniably deserved. Our diverse community has marked this moment in history with a number of events, including The City of Codes & Light Festival, which ran throughout the first week of October and culminated in a free festival, featuring a host of live music, dazzling performances, and a brilliant light display. 

Continuing the celebrations and affirming the importance of this pivotal moment for Milton Keynes, His Majesty The King visited the city on 16 February for a commemorative reception at the Church of Christ the Cornerstone, where he met a range of local community groups representing charitable, business, faith, environmental and arts organisations in Milton Keynes.
