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.
General Prices: £15 + £0.10 booking fee per ticket
Egyptian-British singer Natacha Atlas began her career as part of the world fusion group Transglobal Underground and has collaborated with Jah Wobble. She’s known for her fusion of Arabic and Western music, particularly hip-hop and has been influenced by many styles including Maghrebain, hip hop, drum and bass, and reggae.
Natacha Atlas’s new offering, Myriad Road, sees her combining creative forces once again. This time, she has worked with one of France’s most eminent jazz musicians, Ibrahim Maalouf – the highly-garlanded Lebanese-born French jazz and classical trumpeter, producer, and composer – to produce her first jazz album.
Besides her own projects, Atlas also frequently works with other artists. During her career, she has collaborated with an eclectic group of distinguished names across a wide variety of musical genres including: pop (Peter Gabriel, Sinead O’Connor, Indigo Girls, and Jean-Michel Jarre); classical (Nigel Kennedy, Jocelyn Pook); film scores (Danny Elfman, Clint Mansell, David Arnold, Harry Gregson-Williams, Rachel Portman); and world music (Nitin Sawhney, Transglobal Underground, Talvin Singh).
In working with the celebrated Ibrahim Maalouf to produce this stunning jazz album, Atlas again proves her ability to challenge herself whilst retaining her unique synthesis of Western and Middle Eastern musical traditions. Already being hailed as a game-changer in its pioneering marriage of jazz and the mystique of Arabic vocals, Myriad Road delights and disorients by turn, an irresistible combination sure to enrapture Atlas’s current fans and to seduce new ones.
