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.

Ten years ago, best mates Lisa and Rachael made a show together, No Idea. They had no idea where to start so they went onto the streets and asked the public… What story should they tell? What characters should they play? When they saw Lisa in a wheelchair, and Rachael not, what the public said was funny, jaw dropping and ultimately heartbreaking.
Now people say that the world has changed and that things are looking up. There are more disabled people in the mainstream media, Lisa landed a big part in Eastenders, and disabled mates are getting more regular auditions – happy days, right?
Still No Idea sees sees Lisa and Rachael take to the streets and ask these questions again. Has anything really changed?
Spend an evening with two best friends in this raucous and mischievous exposé of good intentions gone bad.
