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.

COVID-19 arrangements for 2021

As we start to re-open with the remainder of our 2021 season, we are conscious of the need to keep everyone as safe as possible, whilst allowing our audiences to enjoy our shows. We are therefore putting in place the following requirements for attending our events.

You must have proof of double-vaccination (either from the NHS COVID Pass or your vaccination record card) for all those aged 18 years and over in your party. Face coverings are required in the building at all times (including when sat in the auditorium), except in the bar/reception area when they can be removed for eating and drinking. Hand sanitiser will be available throughout the building for your use.

We hope that this is acceptable to our audiences - we feel it is the right thing to do to reduce the risks for both you and our volunteers during your visit.
