You may have already seen that we have just added one last performance to our summer schedule. We are delighted to have West End leading man, Alistair Brammer, return to The Arches Theatre on Friday 13th August ...
We;re thrilled that Alistair Brammer is returning to the Arches Theatre in 2021!
Following a very special show in 2020, Alistair Brammer returns with 'The Magic of Musical Theatre'. Alistair has performed leading roles in both the West End and on Broadway. Shows like Les Misérables, War Horse, Miss Saigon, which he also performed in New York, and Wicked, where he was playing Fiyero before the pandemic hit. He has also performed as a soloist in concerts at the Royal Albert Hall including West Side Story and Sondheim's Follies.
"Alistair also played Jean Prouvaire in the Les Misérables movie alongside Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe!"
Expect some of the finest musical theatre classics that the Broadway songbook has to offer, as well as some interesting stories from his life in theatre and screen along the way, all in the beautiful outdoor setting of the Arches as the sun goes down.
We now have ten incredible shows for you to choose from and enjoy at our quirky outdoor theatre. From two Shakespeare plays and Robin Hood to Cinderella, Sherlock Holmes and more; we most certainly have something for everyone. Click here to see our full line-up!
Tickets are selling quickly to all shows, so get your tickets booked as soon as possible. Gather your friends and family, pack up a picnic, put the bubbly on ice and bring a chair. Escape with us for a few hours at our idyllic, peaceful location and soak up the atmosphere. There is no better place to be than at The Arches on a glorious summer's day.
"Please vote for us!"
For the last few years, we have entered the Best Theatre/Arts Venue category in The Muddy Stilettos Bucks & Oxon 2021 Awards. 'The Muddies' as they are known, are "the most coveted #inlovewithlocal awards for indie businesses". Each year we sadly get pipped to the post by the much larger theatres such as Waterside Aylesbury, MK Theatre and Oxford New Theatre. We would absolutely love The Arches to get recognised this year, so we are asking for your help.
Could you spare just a few minutes to nominate us in the Best Theatre/Arts Venue in Bucks & Oxon category? Here's the link you need. You have only until 22nd June to nominate us.
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.
