Oh, what a night! You’ve probably heard of the various MacIntyre celebrations that have taken place throughout the year, all in aid of our 50th anniversary. Last night saw the celebrations continue as Milton Keynes Lifelong Learning hosted and performed in a spectacular variety show.
From singing and dancing to comedy and even some incredible ‘Stars In Their Eyes’ transformations, the variety show had it all. Guests were treated to delicious food from the Great Holm catering team and also had the chance to win a 40-inch TV donated from our new Corporate Partner Willmott Dixon in our popular raffle. A huge well done goes to Barbara Jones for winning the TV, we hope you enjoy it!
Amongst the audience were Councillor Steve Coventry, Mayor of Milton Keynes and Liane Lacey, Mayoress of Milton Keynes, as well as the former Mayor of Milton Keynes Derek Eastman. Before drawing the raffle, Councillor Steve Coventry, Mayor of Milton Keynes, remarked at the fantastic performances, hard work, and of all that we have achieved at MacIntyre over the last 50 years. We would like to extend a huge thank you to the Mayor for coming along to the show.
And the list of people to thank only starts there. Thank you to the team at Marshalls Theatre, particularly Ellie, Gary, Dave and Steve for letting us use the theatre and for all of their help over the last few months. Another thank you goes to all of the amazing companies that donated prizes for our raffle. And a further thank you to the Milton Keynes Community Foundation for supporting us with our grant funding. The night would not have been the same without the delicious food that was devoured by the audience, so thank you to the Great Holm catering team for their hard work. Last but certainly not least, thank you to the incredible Milton Keynes Lifelong Learning team for all of the time, effort and dedication that went into making the show such a success over the last few months.
