At the Arches Theatre, we base your experience on the quirkiness of the venue, the beautiful backdrop of the limestone arches, the open-air stage in a peaceful and picturesque spot, and not forgetting the fantastic performances from our visiting theatre companies ...

The quirkiness of The Arches Theatre will assure you a great experience!

For us, it is about creating that unique experience that you won’t get elsewhere within Buckinghamshire. We want to be the best, so we put on fantastic productions that will complement our venue. We work with theatre companies, both local and from further afield, that we know will just wow our audiences.

"Some plays may provide an immersive feel where actors run and meander through the audience, get you up and dancing (perhaps) and get you totally involved!"

To add to the experience, we encourage our audience to come early with a picnic and Prosecco (or whatever takes your fancy) and relax and soak up the atmosphere. More information on this coming very soon.

It doesn’t get much better than sitting comfortably in an idyllic and peaceful setting, watching a first-class live performance with friends and family, and a cooled glass of your favourite tipple in hand. A truly blissful way to pass a summers evening.

We hope that the intimate and magical setting of The Arches Theatre will be your annual summer treat!

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.
