Joe’s story focuses on how his love of music has shaped his life in Milton Keynes. Joe grew up in Wolverton, but after going to university in London he felt that Milton Keynes did not offer a vibrant music culture, lacking the record shops, clubs and venues of larger cities. This led Joe to establish his own dance night ‒ Driven which takes place at Unit 9 ‒ a recording studio and music venue in Wolverton.
This HLF-funded project celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of Milton Keynes. We interviewed more than 50 people who have made the town their home, who shared their memories, experiences, and hopes for the future. For more information about the project, visit mkpeoplesstories.co.uk
