Dates & Times
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.
Come along each Wednesday and join us in the social craft-along. Have a chat, make new friends, and craft along in a range of different mediums, led by artist Jane, and accompanied by a relaxing playlist of chill-out tracks. If you prefer, you can even bring your own crafting project from home to enjoy while you chat away. We can’t wait to meet you and see what you’ll create, so come along and get to know us.
No need for crafting perfection here
Never picked up a paintbrush, glue stick, or sewing needle? No problem, you don’t need any previous experience to take part in these sessions. The main thing is to come along, be social, and have fun. You will have a chance to experiment with lots of different crafting skills and play around with making them your own.
What kind of crafts can you try?
The class have created Easter bonnets, painted flags, made butterflies and more!
