Living in the Westcroft area of Milton Keynes and looking for a few hours out?
If you live in the Westcroft or Shenley area of Milton Keynes and are looking for an afternoon activity, which doesn’t involve the car, why not take part in the Pedalling Culture Passport campaign, and discover a cultural world of arts and literature on your doorstep!
Running throughout the entire month of April, the Pedalling Culture Passport campaign not only encourages exploration of the city’s cultural venues and libraries, but promotes sustainable transportation, whether that’s by foot, pedal power, skate or even by electric vehicle!
To take part, simply visit any of the 17 participating Milton Keynes venues to pick up a Cultural Passport – answer a question on the back which relates to that venue, and post it into the post box to receive a badge and be in with a chance of winning some fantastic prizes!
For residents in close proximity to The Westbury Arts Centre and the Westcroft Library, you don’t have far to go to complete two of the passports! Originally a 14th Century moated manor, The Westbury Arts Centre is not only a thriving art community but is home to many ancient and historic features, including an old oak door which is said to have come from an Armada ship! Follow this up with a visit to the Westcroft Library, which only re-opened earlier this year. Children in particular will love browsing the books in the knight’s castle themed children’s section and the library regularly hosts a Lego club.
On Saturday 20th April, The Westbury Arts Centre is holding an Easter Family Fun Day from 11am until 4pm, which will bring to life what it was like to live in a small manor house in the 17th century!
The Cultural Passport is available until the 30th April.

Last month the Redways of Milton Keynes became the travelling base for five, engaging ‘peddlers’. Each offered something extraordinary and unique, incorporating five specially created soundscapes by sound artist Stuart Moore. Channelling the traditional image of a pack of peddlers, travelling the countryside, selling novelty items, handmade produce or mending and repairing, this unique, outdoor…
