Running time: 1hr approx.
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.

It’s getting HOT IN HERE, but there’s still action that we all can take.
Developed from interviews between young people in the UK and climate activists around the world, HOT IN HERE explores the UK’s place in the global climate crisis and shares the action young people are taking around the world to combat climate change.
The show is powered by the first energy-harvesting dancefloor in live theatre, converting the energy of the performers’ bodies into electricity. And they’d love you to join the party at the end of the show – every movement on the dancefloor creates electricity so the more people that join in, the more power there will be! Every one of us, as individuals and as part of a community, can make a difference.
Made by Pigfoot, a multi award-winning theatre company telling stories about the climate crisis, with the least carbon impact possible.
