Milton Keynes wants to spread the #LoveMK in this special 50th year

Posted 18th April 2017

Destination Milton Keynes (DMK), the official tourism organisation for MK, is holding the 5th annual #LoveMK Day on Thursday 27 April 2017.

The aim of the day is not only to promote Milton Keynes as a leisure and business destination but also to harness the pride that many people have in their city, and with the the 50th Birthday celebrations happening this year – that pride is on show more than ever.

Everyone can get involved, you can download the #LoveMK poster, or just get creative with the hashtag and photograph yourselves spreading the love.

DMK recently announced that the visitor economy is worth over £230 million to the area and by encouraging the MK community to get involved in promoting their own city, it could increase the wider benefits even further.

Destination MK and partners throughout the city will be asking the MK Twitter community to use the hashtag #LoveMK on all their tweets on 27 April to try and get it trending in the UK, as it has done for the past four years. And why not get creative – how can you show your love for MK? Maybe create a banner, get your school involved, paint your face, knit      a jumper, bake a cake – anything you can use #LoveMK on!

Carys Underwood, Marketing Manager at DMK, said “There’s a whole lot of love in MK this year, especially surrounding our 50th Birthday celebrations, so we’re banking on that love to show through on 27 April when the Twitter community really get behind #LoveMK Day.”

On the day you can also follow @DestinationMK for your chance to win prizes as they run ’12 competitions in 12 hours’ where you could win by just using the hashtag.

You can download the #LoveMK Day poster from their website and get your photo taken to show your support, tweet it to @DestinationMK and they’ll RT and add it to their Facebook gallery.
