The Arches Theatre: The Groundworks Are Done
Though there's still a lot to do ...
POSTED BY DAVID PIBWORTH ON 26/06/2018 @ 8:00AM
Well, the weather has been fabulous and we've been working hard at the Arches Theatre at Clifton Reynes near Olney. We've made some fantastic progress over the past week or so ...
As you can see from the image above, we've got the groundworks done in and around the arches themselves and put in a permeable membrane under the gravel. This ensures we don't get any plant growth so we don't spend the day before each performance plucking weeds.
"It's all coming together nicely now"
Tickets are selling out very quickly now so if you want a couple then you need to get in touch as soon as you can. We've produced a flyer (below) which you can copy and paste into Facebook if you'd like to promote the first production of As You Like It on the 4th August.

Until next time ...
