We are currently planning to reopen ARC’s building in early September.

Over the next couple of months we will be working to make sure we have a fantastic programme of events and activities for the autumn that comply with social distancing guidelines.

We are so thankful for all your understanding, support, and kind words so far, and hope you are as eager as we are to return to ARC and see the building come alive once more. We will share more details about our plans as they develop.

If you are missing ARC and would like to get involved in something creative, please take a look at our We ARConnected programme. We set a new theme every two weeks and will be holding an exhibition of all the work you have made after we reopen. Anyone can take part. It’s a great way of using your creative skills or having a go at something new, as well as the opportunity to share your work with others when we reopen.

We look forward to welcoming you back to ARC in September.

Ticketing arrangements

If there are changes to an event you have tickets for, we will be in touch by email or phone as soon as we have an update. For rescheduled events you will be able to transfer your tickets to the new date. If you can’t make the new date, or if we are unable to reschedule, we will issue a refund.

We will make you aware of any updates to your bookings, and process changes to your orders as fast as we can. Our Box Office team are currently working from home with reduced hours, so this may take longer than usual.
