ARC’s policy is to set ticket prices based on demand, like budget airlines, which means we set a price when the event goes on sale and then sometimes put the price up or down depending on how the show is selling. Usually, the price will increase as we get closer to the event, so it is advantageous to book in advance, although sometimes we will put special offers on and reduce the price. Our website will always show the current ticket price.
ARC’s theatre and dance performances are priced on a Pay What You Decide basis, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen a show!
We want to encourage more people to come and see shows at ARC, more often. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.
Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.
All money collected will help ARC pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.
Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash on the door or by card at the Box Office.
General Prices: £32.50 + £2 Booking Fee
Seating: Reserved seated
Alexander O’Neal has come a long way since he was signed by Prince back in 1981. One of R&B’s most iconic names, he has 14 (count em!) singles to his name with chart smash Criticize still lighting up dance floors and airwaves across the world thirty years after its release.
With two Gold albums – the eponymously titled Alexander O’Neal and All True Man – as well as the triple platinum selling album Hearsay, his place in the R&B Hall of Fame is well and truly deserved.
2018 will see the release of Alexander’s first album in almost ten years, and fans are in for a treat when they hear how one of the great soul voices has matured since he last ventured into the studio.
With the release of his hard hitting, blockbuster autobiography last year, and a 50 date UK tour to celebrate 30 years of the iconic Hearsay album, it’s safe to say that fans still can’t get enough of the man from Minneapolis!
