Thunder perform at the 2006 Monsters of Rock festival The National Bowl is an entertainment venue in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, England. The site was a former clay-pit (for brick-making), filled in and raised to form an amphitheatre using sub-soil excavated by the many new developments in the area and it has a current maximum capacity of 65,000 [1]. 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.

It has been stated that they will record the gig for their future live album. 2006 Development plans On 23 January 2006, Gaming International/Live Nation won a further lease in a competitive tender. According to a development summary leaflet on the National Bowl website (see "Backstage"), the consortium plans for the Bowl capacity to be increased from 65,000 to 75,000 to become the fourth largest arena in the UK. a new arch stage, taller than the existing trees. a pavilion for 2,000 people for indoor events all year round, permanent (covered) skateboarding park[3]— aimed at providing displays and possibly heats for the 2012 Olympics. The plans declare that it will be "complementary" to SK8MK near Milton Keynes Central railway station). a new Milton Keynes Greyhound Stadium with restaurant and bars for 3,500. The planning application proposes a substantial casino element. This stadium will be in the northern corner of the site (currently used for parking) and not at Elfield Park as previously announced. Used car auctions will resume. a "significant" improvement to the redway/Sustrans cycle route 51 and the wildlife 'corridor' through the park, a children's playground and amenities, such as cafes and permanent toilets, a four- or five-star, 120 bedroom, hotel and leisure complex, a small sports pavilion for local organisations such as MK Cycling Club (who use the ring-road for time-trials etc.). These proposals are subject to obtaining planning permission. As of mid 2009, none of these projects appeared to have begun. Elfield Park Gaming International already owns Elfield Park, a narrow strip of land on the other side of the A5 from the Bowl, between the A5 and the West Coast Main Line. They cleared a site for the new greyhound stadium there, having recently (2005) purchased it from English Partnerships, and evicted the speedway track and motocross club that had used it for 20 years. Greyhound racing in Milton Keynes was previously at Ashland (since 1966): Gaming International owned that too, but sold it to English Partnerships as a brownfield site for a 350 house development. (The sale of the latter funded the purchase of the former or vice versa). A section of the Elfield park site is designated[4] as an educational nature reserve. Milton Keynes Motor Auctions Milton Keynes Stadium Car Auctions is housed on the strip of land. It previously was at Ashland next to the greyhound stadium. Car auctions are held there on Wednesday and Friday.
