For the Milton Keynes anthem, Our Time Is Now, workshop leader/composer Charlotte Harding and the RPO collected and workshopped ideas with the general public at Centre:MK, residents at Camphill Community and pupils from four schools: Cold Harbour Primary, Willen Primary, Walton High and Sir Herbert Leon Academy. You can find out more about where all the lyric ideas came from in this introductory video by Charlotte below.

The RPO was joined by community choir singers, school pupils, members of Dance Box and musicians from MK Brass Band at the Milton Keynes semi-final match Fan Party to give several performances of Our Time Is Now.
