Walking With Giants 2015!

Walking with Giants is now the largest carnival in Central Milton Keynes which - in 2014 - attracted an audience of over 10,000.


This collaborative project led by AHA-MK explores the impact of the First World War on the communities of Milton Keynes and examines their evolution from a time of conflict to that of cosmopolitan opportunities.
