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)
Scenes include fistfights, sword fights and use of other bladed weapons, including sickles. There is brief sight of blood. A man shoots horns from a crossbow which cause people to explode into confetti if they are hit. Bears fight with their teeth and claws, and humans are devoured by fantastical carnivorous plants.
Threat and horror
A cat is pursued by ‘Death’, a large red-eyed wolf. When he encounters him, the cat becomes noticeably scared and suffers from panic attacks in some distressing sequences. However, the film handles the issue sensitively and has a positive resolution. Occasional jump scares and extended chase scenes also occur. Characters are threatened by bladed weapons, held captive, or attacked by larger, imposing characters. In one sequence, a woman smashes a bottle and brandishes it as a weapon, and in another a cat bounces on his sword between a man’s fingers. A perpetually positive dog recalls his previous owners’ attempts to kill him, but appears not to understand the true intention behind their actions.
There are spoken uses of mild bad language (‘crap’, ‘bugger’) and implied uses (e.g. ‘bullsh-‘). There are also scenes in which it is implied characters are swearing repeatedly, but their language is bleeped out. Milder terms include uses of ‘butt’, ‘hell’ and ‘jerk’.
There are jokes relating to cats urinating and defecating, and to a bear having ‘dingleberries’.
