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.
All shows are relaxed performances. You can find out more about relaxed performances here.
The performance at 2.30pm will be BSL interpreted.
All nursery rhyme characters love to party, perform and have fun! This May, some of the most famous faces from your favourite rhymes are coming together to present a spectacular nursery rhyme cabaret.
Headed up by Nero (a cat who plays the fiddle) and Lazzo (a little dog who loves to laugh), the pair bring together their nursery rhyme friends to share their own special stories and skills.
With special performances by Hickory Dickory’s Flea Circus, the famous dare-devilled egg himself Humpty Dumpty, and Incy Wincy, whose many legs make her Tango something to behold, Hey Diddle Diddle is a fun-loving, music-filled adventure with your favourite characters as you’ve never seen them before!
Hey Diddle Diddle features live music, puppetry, laughter, and lots of chances to join in. It lasts 45 minutes and every performance is relaxed, making it an ideal introduction to theatre for children age 6 and under and their grown-ups.
From the makers of The Three Bears, The Tin Foil Astronaut, Wolf!, and The Tortoise and the Hare.
