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: Free (Ticket required)
Seating: Unreserved seated
Festival of Light and Colour.
When the Demons wanted to rule this mortal world, the Gods had no choice but to allow it. However, there was a condition. The demons could rule anywhere in the world without light. So all the people in the world lit lamps, the whole world was bright and there was no darkness to be seen. And so the demons couldn’t rule.
The festival of Light and Colour is a celebration of colour and culture. A celebration of light and laughter. It is an unapologetic unification of people.
Let this infusion of light, colour and music vandalise your sorrow with love.
Come and witness the pulsating beats of the Dhol drummers and a Scottish piper. The intricate storytelling through the medium of Classical Indian dancing. The bright Bollywood dancing with enthrall you. And there will be authentic Indian curries.
This is a free event, but a ticket is required to attend. Pre-booking is strongly recommended.
This event is supported by Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council
