The team is working hard to finalise our schedule (we are very nearly there) and we will confirm full details very soon via our website and social media channels. Be sure to be following us as you don't want to miss a thing.
"We are very excited about the artists who will be performing on our outdoor stage. Some have entertained us in recent years, and some are new to The Arches!"
As we've said before, we plan to go ahead this year and bring fantastic live theatre and music to our audiences. If we are told that we cannot open for COVID-19 reasons, we will be devastated, but we know it is something out of our control and that the show will go on at some point.
Registration to our Arches+ newsletter will be available very soon. Sign up to this and you will be the first to know about the productions and have a one-week window to purchase your tickets before they go on general sale. We'll let you know as soon as this is back up and running.
"Your chance to win tickets!"
It's Random Acts of Kindness Day on 17th February and to celebrate our kindness and spread the love, we are giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky winner to see a show of their choice at The Arches Theatre this summer.
All you need to do is head to one of our social channels on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, find the 'Random Acts of Kindness Day' post and tag who you will bring with you if you win. It is as simple as that.
Good luck and we are looking forward to seeing you all in just a few months' time.
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.
