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.
General Prices: Free
Join Mike McGrother AKA The Wild Rover for your first chance to enjoy his brand new musical walks through our town.
Hear some true and perhaps ‘taller’ tales and encounter some unexpected characters as, led by the singing, storytelling Mike, Stockton’s history comes to life.
The walk will take approximately 50 minutes, before culminating in a traditional 30 minute Pub singalong in The Storytellers, Dovecot Street.
Tickets for ‘Tall Tales from a Wide Street’ are free but limited to 4 per transaction. There will be a hat collection at the end of the event with all proceeds going to the development of Stockton BID’s Dementia Friendly High Street initiative.
