Invitation to take part… Cycle-Cinema Fun Day at MK Gallery

We need human power to make our cinema work - Could you be one of our cyclists?


Electric Pedals, creators of BBC TV’s Human Power Station, are coming to Milton Keynes!
We are looking for cyclists who can help generate the electricity to power the cinema.
We will be showing cartoons, Velorama: a stunning documentary of 100 Years of Cycling and Jacques Tati’s brilliant comedy, Jour de Fête
Saturday 21st May 10 – 3.30pm - FREE for all the Family

Anyone over 5 years can take part. We have 15 minute slots, but if you want to do more. Great!
For more details and how to sign up please attached participant information sheet.

We are currently booking stalls and activities for the square outside the cinema. The stalls would be located in Margaret Powell Square on hard standing- set up from 8.00am - 9.30am - The event will finish at 3.30pm. Ideally stalls holder would bring their own gazebo and equipment and provide the public with a family-centred, safe activity.  We would be very happy to discuss any ideas. Please email: rachel@ic-mk.org
