Lunchtime lectures looking back at MK history

Monday 25 June 2018


A series of lunchtime lectures, looking back at the history of the borough, will begin at CMK library this week.

The Lunchtime Lectures will take place between 1.15pm and 1.45pm, and will start, appropriately with ‘a New City comes to life’ on Thursday (28). 

These will be held in The Event Space or one of the library’s meeting rooms.  

The other talks planned are:

  • 26 July – ‘Unbuilt MK’ in conjunction with MK Forum
  • 23 August – ‘MK and Developing International New Towns Networks’
  • 13 September – ‘Women Who Built MK’ (awaiting confirmation)
  • 11 October –  ‘Albert French’ (the young soldier from Wolverton who died in the First World War)

MKC Leader, Pete Marland said: “Milton Keynes has internationally significant archives relating to the building of the city and it’s really important that MKC and our partners work together on a co-ordinated programme to ensure the best public access possible.

“Using the Central Library as a main venue for this programme reaches existing and new audiences for our archive collections.”
