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.
On Wednesday 23 & Thursday 24 March, Mish Weaver and the Parade of Horribles team are going to be designing, making and building lots and lots of cardboard boats (or boats as costumes), possibly for use in the Parade of Horribles itself.
They would like to invite you, and anyone who is curious enough to come make themselves a cardboard boat, enjoy a cup of tea, and chat about the idea of us all being in the same storm, but in different boats…
It will be completely informal, lots of fun, and will be no obligation to chat or share if you don’t feel like it.
Feel free to drop by, and stay as long as you like.
All materials will be provided.
If you have any questions, or would like a little more information – please contact [email protected]
Parade of Horribles, the brainchild of Mish Weaver, is an ambitious performance project that plans to tour UK high streets and town centres.
Inspired by a US tradition of parading scary things down the high street to reduce their power. Going from city to town, spending time with community groups in each area to better understand what their lives are like, what they fear and what they hope for – translating some of those encounters into joyful imagery, inspiring wonder, laughter and conversation.
People will happen upon, share, and remember images designed to start conversations. They will have opportunities to suggest, change and feedback on what they see. The Parade finds ways to create empathy between people and rejoice in the vibrancy that difference brings to our lives.
