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.

We know lock down isn’t easy on anyone, but there’s extra pressure when it comes to finding ways of keeping our little ones engaged and entertained at this trying time. That’s why Little and Loud now comes to you at home, with 45min sessions at the usual time.
This session will initially take place on a trial basis, with the ambition of then becoming a regular session if successful. This session is a fantastic activity for parents and children under 5 to play and learn together. Little & Loud is a fun and playful weekly session incorporating songs, music, moving, singing and dancing lead by experienced community musician.
Sessions begin with “Hello” songs and move on to favourites like Baa Baa Black sheep and other songs picked out from the song bag. The group play with percussion instruments, toys and other props to create gentle, creative and playful experience.
There is also chill-out time at the end of each session to ensure children, and their parents, leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
