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.

1st-3rd July - Men of the World

Larry, Stick and Frank, three coach drivers, share their experiences of passengers on previous trips to exotic locations such as Folkestone, and getting stuck in the Channel Tunnel for hours.  The affection, frustration and black humour in their observations emphasises that you can take the lad out of Yorkshire, but not Yorkshire out of t’lad.

This play is a co-production by Sharnbrook Mill Theatre and Cytringan Players.

Tickets are now available.

4th & 18th September
An Introduction to the Alexander Technique for Actors

We are delighted to be welcoming Roy Palmer MSTAT for two workshops on the Alexander Technique for Actors this September. The physical benefits of the Alexander Technique are obvious for an actor. Any tension, no matter how slight, will compromise your performance. That same tension will challenge your movement and prevent the natural gestures that make your character believable. The course objective is for actors to recognise the factors that underpin performance, and learn practical techniques to improve them.

Saturday 4th September 2pm - 4.30pm - 18 years +
Saturday 18th September 2pm - 4.30pm -  13-18 year olds

Limited spaces - £15 per person.
