Many of our cinema screenings have an audio description facility. If you would like to use it when visiting our cinema, please let the Box Office know when booking your tickets. Find out more here, and take a look at upcoming films with Audio Description.

BSL & Captioned Sign1.jpg

A number of our theatre productions are BSL interpreted and we are increasingly asking artists to factor this in when planning their work. If you could let us know your requirements when booking tickets, we can ensure that suitable sets are reserved to meet your requirements, e.g. BSL sightlines, lip reading etc. We regularly screen subtitled films as part of our cinema programme. These may be foreign language films or subtitled films for people with hearing loss. Find out more here, and take a look at upcoming BSL performances and Captioned screenings.

Relaxed Performances & Screenings

We have introduced a number of daytime family theatre performances and cinema screenings designed to make trips to ARC a more relaxed experience for learning disabled people, people with autism and people with sensory or neurological conditions. Find out more here, and take a look at upcoming Relaxed Performances and Screenings.


Companions Tickets

A free ticket is available to a companion accompanying a disabled person to an event, where it is an access requirement. You can register with our Companions Tickets Scheme by downloading the access form here, please bring it with you when you book an event, or you can email it to, or post it to ARC, Dovecot Street, Stockton-on-Tees, TS18 1LL. Once you have registered you will be entitled to one free companion ticket for each visit. Organisations and groups can also register for this scheme – you will just need to let us know the organisations name, the name of the person authorised to make bookings for your group, and let us know what the access requirements of members of the group are, including the ratio of companion tickets required for a group visit.
