The four beautiful disused railway arches, dating back to around 1870, and the tranquil parkland in front is available for hire. With gorgeous evening sunsets shining on the face of the venue, picturesque views of surrounding rolling hills and the market town of Olney, the Arches Theatre sits next to the River Great Ouse.

"It really is a picture-perfect venue!"

The venue is available to hire throughout the year except for August when the venue becomes an open-air theatre; The Arches Theatre. There are also points in winter when the venue will be unavailable as it is prone to flooding.

We are approximately 90 minutes from London in the car via the M1 (J14) and if taking the train, the best station to reach is Milton Keynes Central, which is around 30 minutes from Euston, followed by a 20-minute cab ride onto Clifton Reynes.

For images of the venue, previous theatre performances and an aerial film, see our website gallery.

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.
