Welcome to Sharnbrook Mill Theatre

The Mill is a friendly, inclusive, open and award-winning community theatre, entirely run by volunteers and located in Bedfordshire, UK.

We produce four in-house shows each year in our historic theatre which was converted from an old mill. Alongside our productions, we host social events and workshops for members and welcome bands, dance schools and professional artists to our venue. Find out more here.

The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service logoOur theatre was recently awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, equivalent to the MBE and the highest award a UK voluntary group can receive.

If you would like to become a member or get involved in any way, you can contact us here.
