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: Pay What You Decide
Seating: Unreserved seated
What would you do with 205 billion pounds?
Nuketown is a combined storytelling and protest art project about cities, public money and the possible end of life as we know it.
Working with town planners, architects, live feeds and enormous amounts of Lego, writer/performer Jack Dean is building a brand new utopian model city, equal in value to the proposed Trident nuclear submarine replacement programme.
Now he’d like you to invite you to grab some bricks, help him finish off the city and hear an epic tale that animates this imaginary landscape. This is one man’s epic quest to find love, a lost cat and a solution to the military-industrial complex.
Join us. It should be a blast.

Need somewhere to dine before the show?
We know that when you’re trying to make it on time to see a show in the evening life doesn’t just stop – you still need to eat! Thankfully our No 60 cafe bar has a great selection of meals, with something to suit every appetite. From sandwiches and paninis with a range of fresh fillings, to our hearty speciality burgers. Or if you’re looking for something a little bit different there’s always our bistro menu which offers a new selection of flavours and exciting seasonal dishes every month.
