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.

This exhibition will display the photography created by a group of young people in care over the summer as part of the More Stuff Like This Please! project.
For 6 weeks over the summer holidays a group of young people from Stockton-on-Tees learned about photography with professional photographer Ian Paine. They learnt about the history of photography, how to use DSLR cameras, took photographs of valuable items, Stockton Town Centre, and Saltburn, made Hockney-inspired collages, and learned how to edit photos at Teesside University. This exhibition is the culmination of their work across those 6 weeks.
These sessions ran as a part of More Stuff Like This Please! – ARC, Stockton Borough Council, and Blue Cabin’s 2 year programme with care experienced children and young people which aims to engage young people living in/from Stockton-on-Tees with the arts.
