Midsummer Boulevard, which connects Milton Keynes Railway Station to the main business and shopping areas and stretches as far as Milton Keynes Theatre and Gallery, will light up for the Christmas period launching on Saturday 12 November with a festive light switch on event located at the horseshoe area outside intu Milton Keynes.  Kicking off at 3pm, the event will feature a full programme of activity hosted by MKFM’s Oliver Dean.  Father Christmas himself will appear at 4.45pm to switch on the lights with a helping hand from the Mayor of Milton Keynes, Cllr Steve Coventry.  The switch on will be followed by a sparkling laser and pyrotechnic display which will light up the city skyline.
