Cool Events column: Funnies and festivals in MK

Former BBC entertainment writer Sarah Bygrave has picked out a great variety of local events involving colour, fitness, laughter and music for you in March…

Spring is finally here! The birds are singing, mornings are getting lighter and we don’t have to put quite so many layers on when we head out to awesome events!

Here are my top picks to get you out and about in MK for March.

If like me you love everything Bollywood and colourful then why not celebrate Holi, the festival of colour at Medbourne Pavillion Hall in MK on March 4th.

There will be Bollywood tunes, delicious food and your own Holi colour packet – prepare to get messy! Tickets are available via Facebook, just search for the event!

The 11th of March will see hundreds of people donning lycra and lacing up their trainers as they celebrate MK Festival of Running.

The popular event is back this year, with everything from a family friendly 5k to the gruelling half marathon – perfect if you are in training for the Virgin Money London Marathon. You can get tickets and t-shirts from

The super sassy queen of comedy, Katherine Ryan, is swapping 8 Out of 10 Cats for plastic cows as she brings her brand new stand up show, Glitter Room, to MK Theatre on March 17th.

Tickets will go quickly for this one, so book fast at to avoid disappointment!

Finally, indie rock royalty, We Are Scientists are performing an intimate show at The Craufurd Arms on Friday 30th March.

Don’t worry, it wont be a case of ‘Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt’, dancing will be in abundance! Tickets are from £16.50, available at
