The Arches team and I had a brilliant time at the RiverFest 2019 in Olney on Sunday. The sun was shining and there was a great atmosphere ...

RiverFest is held in sight of the Arches Theatre, so it was easy to point out!

A huge "Well done everyone!" to all the organisers from The Olney Group for putting on another great event! Did you make it down? Did you come and visit our stand? You couldn't miss us as we were the ones with the giant deckchair, a life-size tiger and an 8 ft purple dragon.

We've been doing a lot of publicity over the past few months on social and local media, so hopefully, many of you will have seen or heard about The Arches and our productions. But we wanted to increase our visibility within Olney and to meet new people and share our story with them.

"We are so glad we did!"

We met people who had already booked tickets for one show and wanted to book up for another. We spoke with people who had never heard of us, but after pointing out our open-air theatre from our stand, "Can you see those gorgeous railway arches just across the river?", we will no doubt be seeing them again next month. And we also met a number of actors who would like to audition for us for when we do our next round of productions.

We were joined by some of the crew from Milton Keynes Theatre of Comedy and also the cast from Etcetera Theatre Company. It was great to have them with us to mingle with people and speak about their shows.
