THE iconic National Bowl is still without a long-term owner, but plans are in hand to secure the future of the concert venue.

Milton Keynes Partnership assumed control of the giant arena in August 2010 and has been identifying ways to maximise the use and activity at the Bowl in the short term, including booking rock giants Foo Fighters to perform this summer.

A spokesman for MKP said: “We are still at an early stage and are reviewing our options. We will be working closely with Milton Keynes Council to develop a long-term strategy.”
