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.
To celebrate Refugee Week at ARC we have commissioned Jane Bizimana to design an image to represent the people in our communities and pay tribute to this year’s Refugee Week theme, We Cannot Walk Alone. Jane’s image will be turned into a screen print and you will be able to come to ARC between 11am – 7pm on Friday 18 June and have the image printed onto one of your own t-shirts.
ARC is committed to reducing it carbon footprint and waste this is why we are asking that you bring your own t-shirt, the print is black so please ensure that the colour t-shirt you bring is a light shade (white and light grey will work best!).
Sessions are drop in so just pop by with your t-shirt!
