Midsummer Place aims to Make MK Smile

Date Posted:20/01/2014

Monday 20th January is said to be the most depressing day of the year.  Aptly named ‘Blue Monday’, it is notorious as the day when people feel they have hit rock bottom – but not if Midsummer Place Shopping Centre has anything to do with it!
Improving on last year’s effort to banish the blues, Midsummer Place is hosting a whole week of joke-telling to #MakeMKSmile.  From Monday, they will be collecting the funniest family-friendly jokes that Milton Keynes has to offer.  
Members of the public are invited to nominate their joke by writing it on a brightly coloured Post-it note and sticking it to an eight foot high board which will be on display all week outside the new Chopstix restaurant on the Boulevard.  The week-long celebration comes to an end on Saturday 25th January when the best joke will be chosen and the author will win a £50 voucher.
Midsummer Place hopes to bring smiles to the faces of all in Milton Keynes during the gloomiest time of the year.  
Anyone that can’t make it to the centre is welcome to share their joke with the Centre on Facebook or Twitter using #MakeMKSmile.
