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.

The definitive story of a record that has been labelled the “greatest break-up album of all time”, exploring music, obsession, love, loss and fading youth over the 30 year lifespan of The Wedding Present’s much-heralded debut LP, ‘George Best’.
Featuring interviews with all four original band members, key players in the record’s history plus the major influence behind its very existence, Something Left Behind also follows the album’s story through the eyes of the fans who have carried it with them for a lifetime.
The story concludes with the band’s homecoming show in Leeds where the city witnessed a blistering and emotional final-ever performance of the album and the closing of a hugely significant and personal chapter for David Gedge and The Wedding Present.
Director: Andrew Jezard 2018 UK 87 mins.
