The Arches Theatre: We’re Adding More To Our Summer Schedule!
And looking for volunteers ...
Posted by David Pibworth on 01/03/2022 @ 8:00AM
Tickets will be going on sale very soon to The Arches Theatre, our quirky outdoor theatre in Clifton Reynes, near Olney. Apologies to any of you expecting them to be available from Friday, but as we had a few last-minute registrations we thought we’d hold off and put all the performances live at the same time ...
We look forward to welcoming you to The Arches Theatre this summer!
We have some of your favourite acts returning this year, plus we have a range of new ones too. From pure family fun and music to classics and gothic horror, we have something for everyone to enjoy. Our theatre will be opening its doors on 21st July and run through to the beginning of September, with live entertainment and performances taking place every weekend on our outdoor stage.
"Be sure to tell all your friends!"
Keep your eyes on our social media channels to find out when tickets will go on sale and don't forget to sign up to our theatre newsletter, The Arches+, to be the first to know about our live 2022 theatre schedule. You'll get to know what's on before anyone else, plus have a few days to purchase tickets before they go on general sale.
The main team at The Arches Theatre is incredibly small. We are responsible for the production schedules, ticket office and much more. We do a fantastic job throughout the year, but we couldn't run the summer shows without the help of our brilliant volunteers.
During the summer we call upon our wonderful volunteers to help us with a range of Front of House duties on show days and looking after our audiences. Are you interested?
Roles can range from directing audience members to the venue, showing them where to park, welcoming audiences to the venue and checking tickets, showing guests where to sit, answering any questions and more.
In return for your time and help, we will provide you with lunch/dinner (dependent on show times), plus a ticket for you to stay and watch the show you are helping with. How does that sound?! You must be over 18 to volunteer with us.
We look forward to welcoming you to The Arches Theatre this summer.
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.
