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.

BBFC Ratings Info (May Contain Spoilers)
There is infrequent very strong language (‘c**t’), multiple uses of strong language (‘f**k’), as well as milder terms (for example, ‘prick’, ‘pussy’, ‘shit’, ‘piss’, ‘bloody’, ‘crap’, ‘tit’, ‘God’).
There are brief scenes in which adults snort cocaine; however, drug misuse is not condoned by the work as a whole.
A man exposes his penis to another man who is bathing. The context is not sexual. In another scene, a man briefly glimpses a woman sleeping with her breasts exposed.
There is moderate horror and threat in some unsettling scenes in which a man is menaced, including one in which he is chased by a man wielding an axe. In one scene, a man sees a woman with a noose around her neck before she drops forward; however, he immediately wakes up from what is revealed to be a nightmare. There are also verbal suicide references. During a party, a man impersonates Jimmy Savile, and there are brief undetailed mimed references to sexual abuse. The film contains moderate sex references, and there is also brief discriminatory language (‘pikey’) that is not condoned by the work as a whole.
Information about screenings with Audio Description
Audio description is commentary that aims to describe body language, expressions and movements to blind or visually impaired audience members, thereby offering additional information about the film through sound. Our cinema is equipped with a system that delivers audio description through a headset. The audio description runs each time the film is shown and is undetectable to anyone not wearing a headset.
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. You can also let us know this by using the access requirements box when booking online.
