How was your Easter weekend? Even though we are all stuck in isolation and safe at home, I hope you were still able to have fun with your family and enjoy the beautiful sunshine ...
Whatever the weather this season, be prepared for The Arches Theatre!

We have our fingers and toes crossed that the sun will be shining on us in August. So far, we've been incredibly lucky with the weather for our previous two seasons. Well, except for MKTOC's run of The Pink Panther when we had torrential rain. But the cast just carried on brilliantly and the audience hunkered down with cagoules, and we all had a blast.
"That is the fun with outside theatre, especially in the UK; you just don't know what is going to happen!"
Our productions and the outside theatre companies we work with are professional, and the show will go on whatever the weather. So that is why it is you must come prepared with a mixture of sun cream and sun hats, and jumpers and raincoats!
Take a look here at what we suggest you bring. If you choose to bring a picnic (which we highly recommend) why not have a local sandwich company, such as Sandwich Land of Olney make them fresh for you? It's a great way to support our small, local businesses who are going through a really tough time at the moment.
You can also support the theatre industry while in lockdown, by streaming a range of great productions available online. In a recent Facebook post, I mentioned a performance of 'Girls Like That', which features Wet Mariner, Shazia Nicholls. Have you seen it yet? It does contain strong language. Watching theatre online is fantastic, but there's nothing like watching a live production in person and getting totally immersed in it as you would at The Arches Theatre.
So if watching all this theatre from your sofa is whetting your appetite for the real experience, book tickets to see some fantastic local, live performances on our outdoor stage this August and September
We'd love to have you with us at The Arches Theatre to celebrate being out of lockdown.
Until next time ...
