They always take things to another level and are just fabulous to watch. We are so pleased that they were able to join us again in our second season.

"We certainly hope they will return next year as well!"

It may have been a little windy, but no English weather is going to stop us from having fun with the Bard, and this group of fabulous actors. We'd love to hear what you thought about the venue and the performance.

If you could spare a few moments, would you leave a few words in the comments section below? We may use your words in future publicity if that's ok with you?

And if you have any photos from one of the performances, please do share them with us on our social pages. You can find us on -, Twitter and Instagram. Tag us or use the hashtag #archestheatre. We'll enjoy seeing what you got up to!

We even had Juliet (Amy Marchant) performing from the top of the arches themselves!

If you weren't able to make it to Romeo and Juliet over the weekend, but you'd like to experience The Arches Theatre, tickets are available for 'The Pink Panther - A Shot in the Dark', performed by local comedy troupe 'Milton Keynes Theatre of Comedy at The Arches', on Thursday 15th and Friday 16th August. Tickets are just £15 per person you can book them by clicking here. There aren't many left, so do be quick!

The cast of MKTOC at the Arches Theatre has been working so hard to bring this hilarious stage adaptation of the 1964 film. The actors are incredible, and their comedic timing is superb. If you enjoyed the film, then you will not want to miss this live-action version. You are in for a real treat!

Until next time ...
