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.
Join us in the Dance Studio at ARC on Wednesday 17 January 6-8pm for an exciting workshop for backstage/behind the camera creatives working in film, tv, and theatre!
The National Youth Theatre is delivering ‘IGNITE Your Creativity’ in collaboration with Netflix, for creatives aged 16-25 years old. The next stop is the Northeast!
To help crack the ‘glass ceiling’ and other barriers that so many young people encounter, Netflix and National Youth Theatre are running IGNITE Your Creativity, a new programme that will spotlight the wide range of highly skilled behind the scenes careers in film, TV, and theatre. It will also build confidence, aspirations and networks to show that a career in entertainment is possible regardless of background.
The programme begins with a free introductory workshop. These workshops will introduce key job roles in film, TV, and theatre production, giving you an exclusive insight into creative careers and progression routes behind-the-scenes. Led by industry professionals, the workshops will also help to increase your employability, confidence, and creativity, opening up access to a breadth of dynamic opportunities and experiences across the sector.
Following that, there will be further opportunities to hear more about the potential careers in production, including a free five-day course in the region. This will include on-site tours of professional spaces and hands-on workshops where you can meet and work with like-minded people aiming to work in film, TV, or theatre, and learn from industry professionals across the sector.
