Following the Government announcement about new restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, ARC will be closed to the public from Thursday 5 November until Wednesday 2 December.
We will be looking to reschedule (or make alternative arrangements) for events, classes and activities wherever possible and transfer tickets that have already been booked to the new dates. We will be in touch shortly with further details as we put plans in place.
We are planning to reopen on Thursday 3 December. In the meantime, we will monitor the current situation and provide updates as and when appropriate.
During our closure, the Box Office will remain open for incoming phone calls (01642 525199) and emails ([email protected]) from 12pm - 4pm on Monday, and 10am – 5pm Tuesday - Saturday in order to answer customer queries.
A number of live events will now be streamed online. Mike McGrother's Wild Rover: Joe's Speakeasy will be livestreamed at 8pm on Saturday 21 November.
Two online events that were already scheduled for this month will still go ahead as planned, so please do tune into the celebrations for the Festival of Light and Colour on Wed 11 Nov, and have your say in choosing a brand new community event for Stockton by voting for your favourite project at Pizza and Pitches on Wed 25 Nov.
You can also watch two online productions by local playwright and ARC Associate Artist Vici Wreford-Sinnott. Siege is hosted by our friends and co-commissioners at HOME Manchester, and you can access Funny Peculiar via ARC's website.
The following classes will also be svailable online until re-opening:
ARC's Staying Out programme will be delivered to existing attendees by phone and post.
We would like to thank everyone for the support they have shown us since March. We’ve worked hard to ensure the building is safe for audiences and visitors and hope we can welcome you back through our doors again soon.
