Come And Join The Parks Trust For Its Annual Carolling Afternoon

We are currently preparing for one of our annual event highlights – Carols at the Rose.

This year, Carols at the Rose will start at 3pm on Sunday 16th December 2018. It will be held at the MK Rose, located in Campbell Park and all are welcome to this free event. The Carolling will commence at 4pm with Wolverton Town Band leading the musical accompaniment. On the day, Willen Hospice will be selling light refreshments and running a raffle, with all proceeds going to the hospice.

Julie Dawes, Events & Community Engagement Manager at The Parks Trust said: “We really enjoy our annual carolling event - it’s a great opportunity for everyone to come together and really immerse themselves in the festive spirit. It’s a hugely popular Milton Keynes tradition and it wouldn’t feel like Christmas without it. We hope to see you there; don’t forget to wrap up warm and bring a torch or lantern.”

Parking is available at centre:mk car parks (John Lewis end) and visitors can then use the footbridge which leads into the 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.

    There are no refreshment facilities in Campbell Park other than during special events. However, there are a wealth of cafes, bars and restaurants in the nearby city centre, theatre district and Xscape centre.
