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.

A very long time ago there were no dogs — there were wolves, but we didn’t like them and they didn’t like us. But then along came Ugg ’n’ Ogg to pal up with the wolves, invent our best friend, and save us all from a life of doglessness! Join our two intrepid Yorkshire hunter-gatherers as they pal up with their mortal enemies the wolves, and despite flying meat bones, sabre-toothed tigers, time-travelling sticks, and forest infernos, finally get to pat the world’s first Dogg.
Using their characteristic rich theatrical mix of physical theatre, clowning, puppetry, storytelling, and music and song, Ugg ’n’ Ogg and the World’s First Dogg is Theatre Fideri Fidera’s comic take on the amazing evolutionary process that transformed the wolf into all the dogs we see in the world today.
★★★★★ ‘Outstanding. Theatre Fideri Fidera are not Fringe favourites for nothing. Every aspect of the production is marvellous. From the acting, which is pitched perfectly to the wide-eyed wee ones; to the puppets and puppetry, which are in turn beautifully constructed and wondrously brought to life; via the story itself which is full of heart and smiles.’ (Edinburgh 49, Aug 2019)
★★★★★ ‘The two actors who lead the show are family friendly without ever pandering; their little tricks with props delight the whole audience. The set is extremely mobile and creates multiple changes of setting, little song interludes are peppered throughout … Theatre Fideri Fidera are a credit to children’s theatre as they keep a room full of children entertained for an hour.’ (New Perspective, Aug 2019)
