Can you believe we will be opening our gates in just under four months? Where has the time gone? It only seems like yesterday that we were laughing along with MKTOC, booing at the Panto, and singing along to Musicals in the Park ...

We look forward to welcoming you to The Arches Theatre in just a few months!

We are very excited about this summer's performances. We will be welcoming back some favourites and introducing you to some theatre troupes and shows that are new to The Arches. Whatever type of theatre you are into, we have something for you.

"How can we improve your experience with us?"

Each year we strive to make improvements to the theatre based on your feedback. We would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions on how we can make your time with us even better. For example, is there anything that we can improve on or something we can add? Whatever it might be, we would like to know.

Giving you an excellent experience is extremely important to us. We can't get this bit right without your help. Please let us know by either commenting below this blog or emailing

"More shows to be announced soon!"

We are working away in the background, finalising some further shows that we will be adding to our summer schedule. We will be announcing these very soon so keep an eye out. If you want to be the first to know about these shows and have a one-week window to book tickets before they go on general sale, then be sure to sign up to our newsletter, The Arches+.

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.
