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.

Brought to you from the writer-director of award-winning thriller Promising Young Woman and Killing Eve, Saltburn, set in England in the mid-2000s, follows a young university student Oliver, who becomes infatuated with his wealthy schoolmate Felix, who invites him to spend the summer at his eccentric family’s estate.
Initially, Oliver is rejected by his fellow Oxford University students for his perceived poverty but Oliver strikes up a friendship with Felix Catton, a wealthy and popular student who shows empathy towards Oliver’s story of his parent’s battles with addiction and mental health struggles. After learning of the sudden death of Oliver’s father, Felix invites him to spend the summer at his family’s estate, Saltburn. Oliver is introduced to Felix’s parents, Sir James, Lady Elsbeth, and his sister Venetia. Also staying at Saltburn is Farleigh, an American cousin of Felix’s who Oliver clashed with back at university.
Tensions between Farleigh and Oliver run high during a karaoke party as Farleigh tricks Oliver in to performing the Pet Shop Boys ‘Rent’ in front of the family. Later that evening Oliver initiates a sexual encounter with Farleigh, but at the same time is subtly threatening him. Farleigh is later removed from the Saltburn estate as it is discovered he is allegedly attempting to sell plates from the family collection to Sotherby’s.
As the summer’s end draws nearer, Elsbeth and James plan an elaborate party for Oliver’s birthday. On the morning of the party, Felix arranges a trip home for Oliver to see his estranged mum and this is where the story really begins….
Saltburn is a mesmerising mix of dead-pan humour, and dark psychological thriller with a haunting twist.
