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.

Virtual Coffee Morning

Saturday, 20th February - Virtual Coffee Morning

Every third Saturday of the month, we will be holding a Virtual Coffee Morning on Zoom, from 10.30am to 12 noon.

We hope these will create the opportunity for anyone and everyone to join us and have a casual chat. The events are open to members, non-members, locals, non-locals and those with or without an interest in the arts. There’s no commitment to join all the meetings, or even stay for the whole time – just pop in as and when you can.

We are proud to be a community-centred society and want to open our ‘virtual venue’ to anyone who just fancies a cuppa and a chat.

Read more information, and find the Zoom link, on our blog.
