We will be announcing further information very soon, so please do keep checking back to The Arches website and our social media channels. For those of you signed up to our newsletter, you will be the first to know! Why not sign up and get our news before everyone else?
"Are you part of a theatre group looking for a quirky space to hold a performance this summer?"
The Arches Theatre could be the stage you are looking for. Whether you are amateur, professional, specialists in children's theatre etc; we would love to hear your plans to see if we could help bring your production to our outdoor stage. We now only have a few dates available in mid to late August. If you are interested in finding out more about our theatre and how we could work together, please get in touch as soon as possible.
And if you are looking for a beautiful location for filming or photography, then look no further. The Arches Theatre is a unique space made up of four beautiful arches built in 1872, which were once part of the Midland Railway's Bedford to Northampton railway line.
The venue is located in idyllic parkland next to the River Great Ouse just outside Olney, Milton Keynes.
The location and beautiful venue are the perfect backdrops for any film or photography shoot.
Please take a look at our gallery for further images of The Arches as well as some aerial footage and contact us if you would like more information.
We look forward to having you with us at The Arches Theatre again this summer!
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.
