As you may know, to add to your outdoor theatre experience with us this summer, we're inviting our guests to bring their own picnic and enjoy it for 90-minutes before each performance.
Delicious food, your favourite tipple, peaceful surroundings, friends and family and sunshine (fingers crossed)! All of this before a fantastic live performance. Why not have a practice run this weekend and try out what you're thinking of bringing with you this August?
"Be sure to pack all your picnic essentials!"
Alex and his team at Sandwich Land, Olney can help you out with all of that. Take a look at their extensive online menu to see what's on offer and for some inspiration. We can honestly say that the baguettes are delicious. And all very reasonably priced. If you're placing a picnic order for a performance this August, give the Sandwich Land team a call (obviously wait a couple of months), but give at least 48 hours' notice. It is collection only.
It is well worth ordering from here as it takes the hassle out of making it all yourself, you know that you'll be getting a tasty and fresh lunch plus you'll be supporting a great local business. All you'll need to pack is a chilled bottle of something.
What will you be packing in your picnic hamper for a performance at the Arches Theatre this season? Note that BBQs, camping stoves or any form of fire are not permitted at the venue because the grass will be dry and we don't want to start a fire and ruin it for everyone.
