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 mild violence in rollercoaster fight scenes in which sympathetic characters take on evil robots armed with fantastical weapons that emit energy blasts. The fighting also includes undetailed bashing and a head butt that results in a character sustaining a slightly bloody nose, but there is no other injury detail.
Threat and horror
There is mild, occasionally prolonged, threat to characters with whom young children will identify from cartoonish villains and dangerous predicaments, such as collapsing buildings. An older character is restrained and given electric shocks by one of the villains, but is not seriously harmed. Although sometimes intense, the scenes place a focus on the courage, teamwork and resourcefulness of characters as they find ways to escape danger and help their friends.
There is very mild rude humour as a bear takes a shower and wiggles what he calls his “smelly bum”.
Young animal characters, with whom children will identify, cry and demonstrate emotional upset when they believe they have lost their mother and subsequently have memories of her. The characters are given support by others, and there is an ultimately reassuring outcome for them.
Information about screenings with subtitles
Subtitled screenings offer captions which transcribe dialogue only. Subtitled screenings attempt to give D/deaf and hard-of-hearing viewers an understanding of the spoken dialogue within the film, but do not include description about other aspects of the soundtrack, including music and sound effects.
