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.
Catch 22 Comedy Club is back for June!
Phil Ellis is a comedian known for his chaotic stand-up and frisky, easy banter. This award-winning talent has spread joy far and wide with his stand-up for almost a decade. His work is celebrated for being “ridiculously funny”, “gloriously silly”, and “wildly inappropriate”. We can’t wait to see what happens when he takes to the stage as MC this June.
Steve Harris has been a stand up comedian for over twenty years and burst on to the comedy scene by winning the coveted North West Comedian of the Year Award on his fifth ever gig. Shortly after, Steve earned his way to the final of the prestigious BBC New Comedy Award and So you Think You’re Funny Comedy Award.
Howard Anstock is an inspiration – once a rough sleeper, homeless and nowhere to go he turned his life around and is now performing all over the UK telling the funny side of his former life. By his own description he’s also “a dull, middle aged gay guy” but his set is far from nondescript with unique angle of life’s various twists and turns.
Edinburgh-based comedian and writer Gareth Waugh first set foot on stage in 2010, making an immediate splash in the entertainment industry and being described by the BBC as “One of the fastest rising stars of the Scottish comedy circuit”.The two-time Scottish Comedian of the Year finalist and winner of Radio Forth’s Big Comedy Audition has appeared on numerous radio shows, including Radio 4’s The Speakeasy, The John Moloney Show, Radio 4 Xtra Stands Up and BBC Radio Scotland’s Breaking the News, The Good, The Bad and The Unexpected and Live at the Stand.
