Coronavirus update from The Mill

At Sharnbrook Mill Theatre, the wellbeing and safety of our members, volunteers and audiences is of the utmost priority. All activities are currently suspended and all our shows have been postponed. Refunds will be processed for any bookings made for upcoming shows. This is our full statement.

The Mill Theatre is located in Sharnbrook, Bedfordshire, between Bedford and Rushden just off the A6.

We are a friendly, open and multi-award-winning amateur theatrical society, entirely run by volunteers. We produce around four shows a year with a mixture of drama, musicals and variety and welcome audiences from the surrounding area and further afield. Find out more.

If you would like to become a performing member or volunteer in any other way, we'd love to hear from you! When you're ready, you are welcome to become a member.
