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.

We’re back! Socially distanced comedy from the some of the finest wits on the circuit.
MC Danny McLoughlin is our host for the evening and he’ll be introducing three incredible acts to provide some much missed comedy magic.
Multi award winning Newcastle comedian Lauren Pattison. Lauren has performed all over the world and won armies of fans with her live shows and podcasts.
“A breath of feisty fresh air” – ★★★★★ The Herald
“Razor wit and brutal honesty” – ★★★★★ The List
“Fast, Forthright and Filthy” – The Guardian
Don Biswas may appear to be a straightforward, old fashioned gag merchant. He’s actually a razor sharp political comedian who also throws jokes in about his Dyspraxia, A.D.H.D and Asperger’s. Syndrome. Oh and a healthy mix of conspiracy theories to boot!
‘His fresh takes on current affairs are consistently hilarious’ – Broadway Baby
Also joining us tonight is the incredible Freddy Quinne. His uniquely northern observational humour has seen a meteoric rise into some of the biggest clubs in the country. Quinne couples clever, well placed gags together with a vulnerable persona for a unique experience which combines to make a real tour de force performance.
If you’re unable to attend in person, this event will also be live streamed. Book tickets for the live stream.
