The art of conversation is sometimes lost in the 21st Century, so this special event is an opportunity to stop and hear from the wonderful people of Milton Keynes. Leave your smart phone in your pocket and take a journey into the lives of others.

For one morning only, you are invited to engage in a speed-learning event with fascinating thought leaders, experts and mavericks drawn from or who have a strong connection to our City.

People from a wide range of life experiences and fields of expertise will gather at the Stables Spiegeltent to share their passions, thoughts, insights and revelations.

After being plied with coffee and pastry, the audience will lucky–dip from 15 candidates and pick four 20–minute conversations to have over the course of the event...

Learn about the life of a scare artist, celebrant, world diving judge, beekeeper, a life dedicated to volunteering at Camphill, an architect who helped designed the city,  and a passionate resident supporting the arts and communities locally.

Discover more about Space – Mars and Icey Planets, Immunology,  developing communities and business in Milton Keynes and Africa, Allyship, ethnicity, media and politics, psychology, the waterways of Milton Keynes, higher education in the city and wellbeing through adult colouring books.
