Following on from the Prime Minister's announcement last week, we have made the decision to continue with our outdoor theatre productions this August. Our priority now is to put social distancing measures in place to ensure our staff, audience and theatre troupes remain safe at each performance ...

We've decided to continue with The Arches Theatre summer season 2020!

You may have seen on our social media feeds over the weekend, that we are hard at work figuring out not only the best ways to keep us all safe, but also to give you the best immersive theatre experience we can.

"We will continue to adhere closely to the
latest Government guidelines!"

We have everything crossed that by August the restrictions will have eased further, but we must be sensible and be ready for every eventuality. We will share our plans with you shortly. I hope this will alleviate any concerns or worries that you may have about attending or buying tickets.

If you are interested in purchasing tickets:

  • We have some available for the matinee (3pm) production of 'The Merchant of Venice' performed by The Wet Mariners on Saturday 15th August. They are just £15 per person and you can book yours via our website.

  • Tickets for the stage adaptation of 'Allo 'Allo! performed by local comedy troupe, Milton Keynes Theatre of Comedy, on 22nd and 23rd August, will be available shortly via their website.

If things change and we must postpone our shows, we will be in touch with ticket holders directly and make an announcement via our newsletter, social media channels and website.

We hope you are still able to join us and we look forward to seeing you in August.

Until next time ...
