We may have gone a little quiet right now, but that's only because we are working on a very exciting project. We are in the process of refreshing our branding and updating our website ...

2020 at the Arches Theatre was an excellent year, though 2021 will be better!

Over the next few weeks, we'll be taking down our current website and replacing it with a brand spanking new one with lots of great information about our 2021 live performance summer schedule. We're working behind the scenes to bring you some new additions to next year's look and feel of the venue.

"We really hope you're going to love them!"

We have already received some fantastic feedback and positive recommendations following this year's productions. If you have any feedback or comments that you'd like to share with us, please email Nicki directly at

We want you to return year after year, so we to hear about your experience with us. What did you enjoy? What would you like to see more of next year? It's important to us to not only host fantastic live theatre and music, but also give you an excellent customer experience. Your thoughts and opinions will only help us to improve our events, so please get in touch.

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.
