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.
Displace Yourself Theatre will spend a week at the ARC developing their new show, Inner Circle. This will be a devised collaboration between director Jen Nevin and an incredible team of creatives, including the Founder of Kneehigh Theatre, Mike Shepherd.
Inner Circle is a seductive celebration of all of us misfits, our queerness and our underrated ordinariness! Telling the story of a group of outcasts, mischief makers and agitators who have banded together to challenge the social, cultural and political values of the new order. After a lifetime of fighting the system and being marginalised for who they are, they have realised they are just too fabulous to dim their lights… and they won’t try for a moment longer.
Time to whip off our masks and fluff up our feather boas for a night of bizarre storytelling, belting live music with some deliriously comic characters. A joyous experience for audiences to dance in their seats, cry in comradery of our shared heartbreaks and remember the value of being alive!
