Welcome to Sharnbrook Mill Theatre

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

We are a friendly, inclusive, 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.

Sharnbrook Mill Theatre Trust has been awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS), equivalent to the MBE and the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK. Find out more here.
