Our four beautiful disused railway arches set in tranquil parkland beside the River Great Ouse in Clifton Reynes near Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, are available for hire.

"You can find us approximately 90-minutes from London by car via the M1 (J14) and it's well worth the journey!"

This hidden gem really is picture-perfect. The venue is available to hire throughout the year except for August when the venue comes alive as an open-air theatre. Now in our third year, we have worked with both local and professional theatre companies who have performed a range of productions from classic Shakespeare to A Shot in the Dark!

The venue lends itself to many plays and with it being open air, the whole dynamics of performance changes, making it more immersive and interactive and giving it added impact. We have received fantastic feedback from our audience members.

"If you’d like to be involved in our 2021 summer
schedule, why not give us a call?"

For images of the venue, previous theatre performances and an aerial film, please see our website gallery. If you’d like further information or if you would like to come for a recce, please get in touch.

We would love to show you around and hear about your next project.

Until next time ...
