This year we are going bigger than we have gone before! Our 2022 open air theatre season is a whopping seven weeks long and it's filled with some of your favourite returning troupes, plus some new ones too. Each year we have grown our outdoor theatre season, which has enabled us to support even more professional and local theatre companies and musicians.

We are extremely proud of how far we have come, and we thank you all for supporting us and all the artists who have played and performed on our outdoor stage!

Our box office opened last week, and a huge number of tickets have been snapped up already. We are very excited to have ABBA Sensation, The Wet Mariners, DOT Productions, British Touring Shakespeare, Milton Keynes Theatre of Comedy and Etcetera Theatre Company returning this summer to give us some more outstanding live performances.

New to our live theatre schedule is local musician, Dan Evans, who will be performing an intimate dulcimer and guitar concert, plus The Last Baguette Theatre Company with their family fun stage adaptation of 'King Arthur'.

Please head over to the What's On page of our website to see the full line up and to purchase tickets. We are still working with some troupes to get them onto our schedule, so there are some blanks in the season at the moment.

"We'll tell you more as soon as they have been confirmed!"

Before you make a purchase, please remember that we can't hold tickets and we don't offer refunds. We hope that you will be able to join us for another summer of fun and escapism at our picturesque outdoor theatre in Buckinghamshire.

Until next time ...

About David Pibworth ...


David is the owner of David Pibworth Productions who provides entertainment for theatre and corporate events. This ties in very well with The Arches Theatre, an outside venue that David owns underneath a disused railway line, equidistant from Bedford, Northampton and Milton Keynes. This was one of the few venues that could operate with social distancing in place during the summer of 2020 and where they ran everything from Shakespeare to Richard Digance through the summer months.

David has been involved in light entertainment for many years, even going back as far as working on a production with Norman Wisdom in London. He has a knack of keeping in touch with everyone he's worked with and would bring such people as Chas and Dave, Kenny Ball and Acker Bilk round to play locally when the chance arose.

His company also represent the stage rights for Ray Galton and Alan Simpson, the writers of Steptoe and Son and Hancock's Half Hour. He has recently negotiated permission with Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais to produce Porridge on stage although this is all hampered by the current situation and the availability of theatres.

Next year, at the Arches Theatre, he will produce Ripping Yarns, written by Michael Palin and Terry Jones. This will be an interesting production as not only does one episode involve playing a football match, but also with the agreement of Michael Palin and the wife of the late Terry Jones, it has been decided that all the profits on this production will go to a dementia charity as Terry Jones died as a result of dementia, as did David's father and uncle.
