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.

Skip Rap is an angry love song to grit, endurance and creativity.
Alan has packed a lot into his 41 years; not least a 15-year career as an artist, touring nationally and internationally; but Alan knows what it’s like to be put down, cast aside and written off.
Alan aka Alan ‘Cool’ Clay delivers a defiant and bold performance about what it’s like to be treated like trash and how you find your way out of the junk, in his debut solo show Skip Rap.
Hitting the note between Alan’s difficult background and his exceptional success, Skip Rap explores how these experiences clash and merge and continue to shape his art, his views and his life.
Alan is an artist, performer; stand up comedian and rapper who is learning disabled. Fusing hip-hop, theatre, digital imagery and junk- Skip Rap has a kick of reality, a storming soundtrack and an energy that will have you up on your feet.
On stage, Alan is joined by acclaimed MC, poet and theatre-maker Testament (Blake Remixed, WOKE). In collaboration with Baba Israel (The Spinning Wheel, Country Boy’s Struggle) and directed by Iain Bloomfield (Learning How to Die, Rise and Fall of a Northern Star).
