Ginger Mum Column: MK set to shine this summer

Lifestyle columnist Amanda, AKA Ginger Mum, shares her ideas for summer fun, including The Barge Inn and Craig David at Campbell Park.

Our resplendent region is bustling with events and opportunities for what is my favourite time of year.

Not least because I celebrate my birthday in July but also because outdoor dopamine days are my favourite.

Top of the go-to will be the highly feted new kid on the block, Hotel La Tour, with its unrivalled views and
decadent roof terrace, it was built for lazy summer days and balmy evenings with great company.

Country pubs with pretty outdoor patios are a real serendipity over this season too and The Barge Inn, Woolstone, where I recently had brunch and checked out their comprehensive refurb, is a cute spot to meet & eat that I can personally recommend.

Willen Hospice’s essential fundraising events are back in full swing and definitely deserve our support!

With Midday Moo on 25th June, old favourite Midnight Moo on 15th July and one for the kids, the Mini Moo on 7th August, there’s something for everyone.

You all know by now I’m a huge supporter of MK Theatre and their summer line up is nothing short of first-class.

I can still hear the ringing of the majestic chorus of the recent and incredibly powerful Les Mis in my ears, but the theatre keeps on serving us with hit after hit.

Over the next few months, take your pick from options such as Cluedo starring Michelle Collins, Bat Out Of Hell, Joseph, Mamma Mia, The Da Vinci Code, Derren Brown and a whole host of other showstoppers.

The World’s Strongest Man makes a welcome return to Stadium MK in a 3-day power move 3rd-5th June. A gratifying and motivational spectacle for the whole family to enjoy.

I can’t leave you without reminding you some tickets are still on sale for Craig David in Campbell Park on
22nd July.

You may have seen on my Instagram stories back in October that I saw him live in Bedford and, wow, what a spectacle. He is a seasoned showman and combines his crowd-pleasing DJ-ing skills with singing his own songs and freestyling, wowing his audiences.

Also check out his podcast episode with Steven Bartlett, on Diary Of A CEO, it’s very honest and insightful.

Don’t forget you can follow my daily musings on my Instagram stories over @gingermumstyle
