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.

BBFC Ratings Info (May Contain Spoilers)
Mild and undetailed violence with reassuring outcomes occurs. A character uses her powers to escape a group of villagers armed with pitchforks and axes, one of which hits a tree character in the back. An army of humans storm a forest, there is repeated sight of people running from and falling into fire. Humans and forest creatures battle one another with magic, bladed weapons and heavy machinery.
Threat and horror
Mild threat includes characters being pursued by villains and fantastical creatures. Characters disarm individuals swinging a chainsaw, rescue a man from drowning in a locked cellar, witness a human skull emerging from a lake, and save creatures from being crushed by a bulldozer. A woman is startled by a wild animal but later rescues its trapped cub, a young calf is saved from hunters and a character awakens in a dark cloud to the ominous voice of a magical being.
There is use of very mild bad language (‘God’, ‘damn’).
There is a scene in which two characters kiss, and a water spirit playfully flirts with a human before hissing and frightening him.
There is infrequent use of toilet humour.
There are references to a man dying in a forest fire and his becoming an orphan, and ill characters needing medicine to survive.
