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.

Bring on the Tex-Mex fun as Los Pacaminos invite you on high-octane tequila-fuelled journey to border blues-ville.
Expect a mash-up of Mariachi and Norteno styles from Mexico alongside the Country/Blues sounds of South-West America. Tex-mex is played by such luminaries as Ry Cooder, Flaco Jimenez, The Texas Tornados and of course Los Lobos. Plus – in the case of Los Pacaminos – Paul Young, one of the UK’s best- loved vocalists, who heads a formidable gang of well-seasoned musicians.
As Paul says ‘Los Pacaminos started out just for fun, playing simply for the pleasure of it. It all took off from there. It’s real bar-room stuff – foot stompers, not too many slow songs – a real party atmosphere.’
A typical Pacaminos set might include Wooly Bully, La Bamba and sometimes, if enough tequila is flowing, Speedy Gonzales.
Up for the party? Put your blues on cruise and come and join the fun! Oh, and this one is an unreserved mix of standing and seats, so make sure you bring your dancing shoes!
