Actually, there are quite a number of jobs to complete on the Arches Theatre as it's an ongoing project ...
We've got one more job to do on the arches theatre and need someone's help.

But the main one is to secure the stones on the top of the arches themselves for safety reasons. The plan is to put wire mesh ever them to stop any falling off. It's most unlikely that any would, but presently they could be pushed off.
So, is there anyone who can do that job for us, at a good rate? If so do give me a call as we would like it completed by the spring.
After that, we can then design a cover which will go from the arches themselves and cover the audience in the event of rain. This is only for bad weather. We intend to run as many shows as possible completely outside, but given this country's tendency to suddenly spring a bit of ghastly weather on us, it's best to be prepared.
So, we move onwards and upwards to our season in August, of which more soon, and hopefully some more box office news next week.
"Would you like to know more?"
If you'd like to find out more about the Arches Theatre then do give me a call on 01234 241357 or click here to ping me an email and let's see how I can help you.
Until next time ...
More 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.
