For this week's blog post, I wanted to send a huge thank you to everyone who has made The Arches Theatre come alive this summer. As you may know, The Arches Theatre is an independent outdoor venue in Clifton Reynes that is owned and managed by me, David Pibworth ...

Dispite the challenges, this year's season has turned out brilliantly!

But the shows would not have gone on without the the incredible performers and theatre troupes who have acted, sang and danced on our stage this summer:

And, of course, the brilliant Arches Theatre team:

  • Juliet Pibworth

  • Mark Luckin

  • Neill Elliott

  • Dave Greenaway

  • Mac McCann

  • Steve Baldock

  • Nicki Probets

  • David Lovesy

  • Emily Thomas

  • Sean McDermott

  • Keith Lennox

  • Pam Buckle

  • Liz Buckle

  • Joy Dilnot

  • Natalie Stevenson

  • Paul Wheeler

  • John Dowell

  • Beth Stone

A big thank you also goes to:

  • The Willen Ice cream Company

  • Cervine Ltd (Portaloo's)

But of course, there are quite a few more people I need to thank! And that is every single audience member who came and watched a performance. We've been overwhelmed by the number of people who have supported not only The Arches, but also the artists during this difficult time. I know that there are many of you who have been to more than one show, and some of you who came to all six.

Without you we wouldn't have been able to put on this incredible schedule together. So, for that, thank you!

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.
