And extra tickets released too ...
Posted by David Pibworth on 11/05/2021 @ 8:00AM
With just under three months to go, we are very excited to add two final shows to our already jampacked summer schedule at The Arches Theatre. These two new shows are guaranteed to give you a dose of good family fun ...
Come and enjoy the summer 2021 season at The Arches Theatre!
So, what's new? First of all, Cinderella, The Arches Family Summer Panto is back by popular demand. We bring you The Arches Family Summer Panto on 30th and 31st July at 1pm and 4pm. This year, our small cast of fabulous local actors will once again take on their own retelling of the classic and much-loved panto.
"Oh yes, they will!"
Join us for a classic rags to riches tale, filled with true Arches style family fun and Covid safe interaction. If you came to see Aladdin last year, you know you are in for a great afternoon. Further cast details to follow. Book your tickets now!
And secondly, we have Robin Hood by DOT Productions. They're a touring theatre company, and will be putting on this fun fast-paced adaption of 'Robin Hood' to our outdoor theatre on 22nd August at 1pm. Come and meet Robin and his Gang battle against the evil Sheriff of Nottingham and steal from the rich to give to the poor.
With Maid Marion's help Robin might be able to finally stop Prince John and the Sheriff from ruining everything they hold dear in Nottingham. Full of memorable characters, silliness and charm this production is an hour of pure escapism, which will leave all the family with a smile on their face! Book your tickets now!
"We've added more tickets for some of the most popular performances!"
Don't miss their incredible stage adaptation of Jane Eyre at 5pm on 22nd August and we have also made a few more tickets available to shows previously sold out, including Twelfth Night (Wet Mariners) and The Hounds of the Baskervilles (British Touring Shakespeare). ABBA Sensation has officially sold out.
Tickets are selling fast to all shows, so book yours soon and don't miss out on a wonderful outdoor experience this summer. Book your tickets now and we hope you are able to join us for one, two or all of our shows this summer.
I look forward to seeing you all very soon.
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.
