Thank you to everyone who came to the Arches Theatre on Saturday to see the Wet Mariners in action in their adaptation of Romeo and Juliet. Wasn't it an amazing performance?

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 ...

More 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.
