World Theatre Day 2021 is just around the corner on Saturday the 27th of March. It is celebrated annually all around the world with the hope of building awareness about the importance of theatre and the arts, plus highlighting the phenomenal artists and creatives within the industry ...
World Theatre Day 2021 celebrates theatre and the arts every year!
As we know, it's been an incredibly tough year for theatres and the arts as a whole. World Theatre Day 2021 will certainly be more poignant than previous ones. As many theatres slowly switch on their lights and artists continue to move forward to live performances and new opportunities, we must continue to support them where we can.
This year we will be joining in the celebrations and shouting about the incredible talent we have had on our outdoor stage over the last three years, as well as the sensational artists performing this summer.
We are also giving you the chance to win a pair of tickets to come to The Arches Theatre this summer to see a show of your choice. All you have to do is:
Comment who you will bring with you if you win. You can tag as many people in the post as you like. Each tag is one entry... so get tagging!
To make the experience even better for our winners we have teamed up with local artisan ice cream maker, Richard at The Willen Ice Cream Company. He will give our lucky winners an extra treat of a scoop of his finest handmade ice cream at the event (as long as he is able to attend and not at a prior engagement) plus a tub of their Flavour of the Month (tbc) for collection at Olney Farmers Market.
"Wow! What a prize!"
You can't get better than a fantastic live theatre with delicious ice cream. Enter today! If you haven't seen our line up for this year yet, please take a look at our What's On page. We have something for everyone and still more to announce.
You are in for a real treat this summer.
Until next time ...

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.
