This is a gorgeous location and is just an hour outside of London. The four beautiful disused railway arches are available for film and photography hire, as well as the parkland in front of the venue. Visit our online gallery to see our beautiful and picture-perfect venue.

The venue is available to hire throughout the year for film and photography hire, except for certain weekends during mid-July to early September, when the venue becomes an open-air theatre. There are also points in winter when the venue will be unavailable as it is prone to flooding, as the venue is built around a flood bridge, right next to a river.

Where are we and how can you get to us? We are in the small village of Clifton Reynes, near Olney and just outside Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire. We are just over 60 minutes from London in the car via the M1 (J14). If taking the train, the best station to reach is Milton Keynes Central, which is around 30 minutes from Euston. And then 20 minutes onto Clifton Reynes by car.

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

Until next time ...

About David Pibworth ...


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.
