Description: The National Bowl in Milton Keynes NW of London is a 65,000 capacity entertainment venue. The site was a former clay-pit (for brick-making), filled in and raised to form an amphitheatre using sub-soil excavated when the adjacent A5 was diverted to bypass the settlements along Watling Street.

The venue opened in 1979 with gigs by Desmond Dekker and Geno Washington. In 1992, Sony/Pace bought the venue and re-branded it as The National Bowl, building a permanent massive sound stage. They pulled out in 1996 citing profitability reasons. English Partnerships, bought the site in 2000. It is currently leased to a Gaming International/Live Nation UK consortium.
