Ginger Mum Column: MK Pride at Campbell Park

Our resident lifestyle blogger Amanda, aka Ginger Mum, talks about MK Pride, a Prosecco Festival, crystals and how you can support the homeless.

Stepping right into summer here in MK could not be more exciting after such a lengthy time of great uncertainty, it’s time to look forward to all that MK has to offer in the sunshine season.

Back with a colourful bang is MK Pride, in all its rainbow hued glory. On September 11th, Campbell Park will once again be choc full of all day family friendly entertainment.

Two main stages, bands, drag artists, chilled sounds and after sunset, over 18s only.

Now the hot ticket for October 23rd you must secure is for the Milton Keynes Prosecco Festival complete with live music, nibbles, snacks and a hot food stand serving an array of Italian inspired street food.

Situated in The Ridgeway Centre, Wolverton Mill, this fizzy festival is the perfect combo for a great time with your besties.

Recently I spent time at the Salt Shack, the new showroom in Linford Wood for all things crystal.

This family-run business has gone from strength to strength and is the go-to authority for both entry level rocks and rare investment pieces.

With a wealth of knowledge of the geology behind their products and a global supply chain, they can lay their hands on everything from crystals, minerals and fossils to salt lamps and jewellery.

Pivoting their business during the pandemic, they have ridden the wave of Covid and come back stronger than ever with an abundance of gratitude and a huge, dedicated community.

Check them out on or make an appointment to visit their MK treasure trove.

I was delighted to see another homeless donation point as I left John Lewis in centre:mk recently.

The easiest way to help a human, tap and go to support Milton Keynes Homeless Partnership.

I will see you back here in October, but in the meantime, I hope you all have a very healthy and happy summer.
