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.

Life is a waiting game
Waiting for a turn on a swing, to go on a plane or waiting for something exciting to happen
Waiting for your bus, a waiter, that call, a text or simply waiting for the right moment
Waiting for something to go your way or the right someone to cross your path
Life is simply a waiting game
For the past twelve years Star Academy have recreated well known story lines producing performances that have grown in stature, talent and expectation. This year we aim to provide the same spectacle whilst tackling less fictional topics focussing on life itself.
Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for it and make the most of the moment you are in now
Please note: For certain performances there may be a restricted view from some seats in the Gallery and parts of the Circle and Boxes. Please check the seat information when booking for more details.
