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: Tables £12 / £10 + £0.10 booking fee per ticket

Good Friday, better comedy. Catch 22 Comedy Club kicks off the Easter weekend with a bang.
Teesside’s most popular comedy club gets the bank holiday weekend started on a high-note, with Matt Reed as host and a another killer line-up in tow.
Matt Reed’s improv skills have seen him sell-out 2 of his solo shows in the past year alone, with another in the pipeline. As cheeky as he is brutal, Matt has the ability to entertain the crowd while skilfully destroying any heckler that crosses his path – which is why local comedy fans just keep coming back for more!
The charismatic Steve Shankyaski made it through to the semi-finals of the BBC New Comedian of the Year just six months after starting his comedy career. Since then, his surreal but highly relatable observations have earned him titles like the Holsten Pils Comedian of the Year and the Birmingham Comedy Festival’s Best. He’s a long established comedy club headliner, regularly closing at top comedy clubs including Jongleurs, The Glee Club, The Frog and Bucket and Catch 22 – obviously!
