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: Livestream Access (per household) £6 + £0.50 booking fee
Some might be Plink and others are Boo
Why does it matter, what’s the to-do?
Jumbled up people and boxes too small;
Let’s make a den and discover it all…
Welcome to the topsy turvy world of Play-Along Plink and Boo, a unique circus theatre performance made for camera by Can’t Sit Still (the creators of Oh No, George!). Join us from the comfort of your own home as we explore what happens when people don’t fit into boxes (even if it is the neatest place to put them).
This show combines watching a filmed performance with playing along with real objects in your own homes. The objects are the same as the ones you’ll see in the show. You can download an activity pack or watch this instruction video that shows you how to make these objects, using things you can find round the house:
Before you watch Play-Along Plink and Boo, we recommend getting ready by building a theatre den in your front room! In this video, Thea, the youngest member of Can’t Sit Still, shows you how to do just that:
But we appreciate that anyone looking after children is likely to be busy! If you don’t have time to do all this before the show, don’t worry. You can still enjoy the experience without the props or den.
The filmed performance of Play-Along Plink and Boo will be available to watch from 10am on Friday 30 October and you can watch it as many times as you like over the weekend! Bookers will be sent an email with a link to use to watch the show (please note, you only need to buy one access pass per household for any number of people in your household to watch the show).
