Welcome to our new website!

Designed by Newcastle company Presence, the sleek new look, loaded with eye-catching images, coincides with a faster and more efficient box office system installed last year, making booking online easier than ever before.

Surf the new site and you will find more information at the click of a mouse than ever before, including what’s on, how to get involved, where to park, and what’s on the menu. You will also find key information around artists and theatre companies who are currently working with ARC, large scale community projects and information on our membership schemes.

A new search facility allows you to bring up the event you are looking for with greater ease, whilst visible widgets flag up any special offers associated with an event or cinema screening. Extra tabs have been created, so additional information is easily accessible from the homepage, and there is even a fast and simple way to purchase gift vouchers under the “other” section.

ARC’s Chief Executive, Annabel Turpin feels the new website is a truer reflection of ARC as an organization,

“The design of our new website is much more fluid, giving greater representation to all of the external involvement ARC has in the area. We are obviously well known for our live programme of shows and our cinema, but there is another side of ARC which is heavily ingrained into community projects, activities, and associate schemes. Now we can really broadcast this via the new website. We hope our customers enjoy the new look!

For information on what to expect coming up at ARC, it’s history and aims, board member biographies and anything else you might want to know, have a browse around to see what the new website has on offer.
