Bedfordshire is a county that offers something for holidaymakers of just about every persuasion. The rolling hills and acres of pristine countryside appeal to keen ramblers and lovers of wildlife. Elsewhere, the bustling towns make an equally attractive proposition for devoted shoppers and culture vultures. Undoubtedly the cultural heart of Milton Keynes lies in the impressive and unique Milton Keynes Theatre. With so many fine hotels nearby, the theatre lures in a good number of tourists each year.
Milton Keynes Theatre
Opened back in 1999, the theatre in Milton Keynes made an immediate impact in the town thanks to its spectacular architecture. The building was designed by Blonski-Heard with Kut Nadiadi and Robert Doe. Not only does the theatre look attractive from the outside, but the inclusion of an advanced moving roof means it's technically impressive as well.
The roof lowers and raises on demand, meaning that the inside of Milton Keynes Theatre is incredibly versatile. With a capacity ranging from 900 to 1400 people, the theatre can host a variety of events. At full capacity, the theatre makes an ideal venue for large scale popular events. Alternatively, the lowered roof can offer a pleasant atmosphere even for smaller shows, such as touring opera or ballet.
