Welcome to the Arches Theatre ...

With some local and West End theatres coming to life again this weekend, plus Strictly Come Dancing whetting our appetites for more musical theatre productions, we are getting even more excited about live shows coming back to The Arches Theatre next summer ...
The Arches Theatre is a picture perfect outdoor theatre venue for hire!

What's the line-up? Well, we can't tell you this yet, but we have already booked some of our favourites to return; one, of course, being Milton Keynes Theatre of Comedy. Plus, we have some new production companies joining us, bringing exciting shows to our outdoor theatre.
"When our unique theatre isn't being used for live productions, it is hired out as a location for photography, film and TV!"
Whether you are a Location Manager looking to hire a beautiful backdrop for your next project, look no further. The four beautiful disused railway arches, dating back to around 1870, along with the tranquil parkland surrounding it, picturesque views of the old market town of Olney, and the River Great Ouse flowing alongside ... this would be the perfect location for your shoot.
You can find us 90-minutes north of London via the M1 (J14) and it's well worth the journey.
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.
