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.

The Tees Valley International Film Festival and ARC welcome Oscar and BAFTA winning film producer David Parfitt to take part in an in intimate evening of conversation in which he will discuss the many highlights of his illustrious career including taking the Academy Award home in 1998 for his work on Shakespeare in Love. Originally from Sunderland, David set up his first production company with Kenneth Branagh in 1987 and went on to produce such classics as Gangs of New York, The Madness of King George and The Father. David was Chairman of BAFTA from 2008 to 2010 and is currently chair of North East Screen so nobody is better placed to advise local filmmakers on all of the support and funding that’s available to them.
- Hosted by Middlesbrough’s Victoria Gibson, the show will be in a relaxed, interview style format and will finish with an open and honest audience Q&A. So whether you’d like to hear what life’s like among the A list movie stars in Hollywood or if you’d like to ask what support and funding is available to amateur filmmakers, Oscar winning film producer David Parfitt will be happy to tell all.
This event is part of the Tees Valley International Film Festival.
