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.

Originally commissioned by Soul Cookers Records for Saint Paul Soul Jazz Festival 2008, this authentic celebration of Otis Redding’s music pairs charismatic Burundian singer songwriter Mudibu with Hammond and horns from The Jezebel Sextet.
The result is a truly uplifting show steeped in raw soul and late1960s R’n’B that is guaranteed to get you on the good foot – a show where dancing The show list features over 20 Otis Redding classics, performed live backed by a seven piece band with Hammond organ, 3 piece horn section and 100% authentic instrumentation and arrangements.
Recent performances include The Jazz Cafe, The Boisdale Club, The Hideaway Club, and Hootananny in London. Headline festival appearances include Saint Paul Soul Jazz Festival; Roubaix Vintage Weekender; Tighten Up Festival in Marseille; and Grand Casino Soulstice Party in Nice.
Burundian singer songwriter Mudibu grew up with a heartfelt love of 1960s soul and RnB and voice to match. He’s performed all over Europe and Africa and his six-track EP Slow Me was released on Akazi Records in 2008. Mudibu’s new album Inzatsa (Fireflies) is out soon.
