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: £28.50 + £2 booking fee.
Seating: Reserved seated
Madness frontman Suggs not only sold out venues up and down the land with his one man show My Life Story, he also won rave reviews from the press and public. Now he’s back with a brand new show and performing at the PAA for the very first time.
It’s been nearly 40 years since a teenage Suggs won the hearts of the nation, belting out the now classic ska hits One Step Beyond, My Girl, Our House and Baggy Trousers. With the songs sounding as fresh today as they did back in the 80s, Suggs has now turned his writing skills into capturing some of the many adventures he’s had in the course of his colourful career.
Vertigo on the roof of Buckingham Palace while playing for the Queen’s Jubilee, nearly blowing the closing ceremony of the Olympics, watching his underpants fall to earth on Bowie’s driveway…
Suggs has more stories to tell than the Brothers Grimm and this show will see his effortlessly engaging skills as a raconteur combine with some of his best loved music.
This event will take place at Princess Alexandra Auditorium.
