Live outdoor theatre and music return to The Arches Theatre, near Olney, Buckinghamshire, this summer for a whopping seven weeks. This will be our longest run yet, jampacked with familiar faces and new ones too ...
We look forward to welcoming you to The Arches Theatre this summer!
We have had a lot of interest in our 2022 summer open-air theatre programme, so we are still very busy pulling together an exciting schedule for you all. We can't wait to share this with you. Watch out for an announcement on our website and social channels later next month.
We are delighted to announce that our quirky outdoor theatre will be opening its gates this summer on Thursday 21st July 2022. So, make a note of that in your diary and tell your friends!
From Shakespeare and family fun to comedy and live music - as always there will be something for everyone on our theatre schedule. This year we are doing things a little differently and having four days in July dedicated to our exciting music performances. More on this very soon.
Don't forget to sign up for our theatre newsletter, the Arches+, to be the first to know about our live 2022 theatre schedule. You'll get to know who will be on our outdoor stage before anyone else, plus have a few days to purchase tickets before they go on general sale. Here's the link you need to sign up to The Arches+. Keep your eyes peeled for further information coming soon.
We look forward to welcoming you to The Arches Theatre this summer.
Until next time ...

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.
