Live theatre and music is back in Milton Keynes with an outdoor venue this summer

    Quirky outdoor venue, The Arches Theatre, located in Milton Keynes, returns for its seventh year with another jam-packed summer season of live theatre and music on 25th July 2024.

    The unique open-air venue in Clifton Reynes takes its name from the four beautiful disused railway arches used to stage exciting live theatre and music over the summer months.

    Following six successful years of sell-out performances, this year The Arches Theatre will host thirteen productions from local and professional theatre groups and musicians over five-weeks between 25 July and 31st August.

    Owner and Artistic Director, David Pibworth says, “We’re now in our seventh year and excited to bring another summer of fantastic live theatre to our outdoor venue. Our aim is to create a unique outdoor theatre experience that you won’t get elsewhere within Buckinghamshire area, where there is something for everyone and ticket prices are kept low.”

    There will be family performances, comedy and gothic horror to live music, an original Shakespeare sequel and much more.

    Audiences must bring a chair and are invited to pack up a picnic and immerse themselves in captivating live performances, including the heart-warming comedy ‘Educating Rita’ with Underneath The Arches Theatre Company, family favourite ‘The Railway Children’, plus the wonderfully witty Wilde play ‘An Ideal Husband’ with returning favourites DOT Productions, along with many more performances.

    To top things off, ABBA Sensation returns to The Arches for the third year to entertain audiences with live music on Friday 2nd August and Supersonic Queen – the UK’s premier Queen tribute bands - debut on our outdoor stage on Saturday 3rd August.
