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: £12 / Tables £14 + £0.10 booking fee

Catch-22 favourite Matt Reed is back at the helm tonight. The gin guzzling, Jesus lookalike has the most infectious giggle in the business and is a blooming genius at getting the audience involved.
Andy Robinson is a bit of a legend on the comedy circuit. He’s been in the business well over 20 years and began his meteoric trajectory into the glitzy world of show business from a pub in Dudley where he sharpened his trade compering a ‘free and easy’ night every fortnight. The discipline of cracking funnies between bare-knuckle boxing and dogfights was an invaluable experience. As a result he’s appeared on TV many times such as on Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Shooting Stars, Later with Jools Holland and The Jonathan Ross Show.
He’s also been tour support for the likes Sean Lock, Rich Hall, Paddy McGuiness and Jo Brand.
