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.

Wallace and Gromit, make their feature debut here. After starting a pest control business, the duo soon lands a job from the alluring Lady Tottington to stop a giant rabbit from destroying the town’s crops. Both Wallace and the stuffy Victor vie for the lady’s affections. If Wallace wants to please his pretty client, and best Victor, he needs to capture that pesky bunny.
BBFC Ratings Info (May Contain Spoilers)
The film contains infrequent very mild bad language, some of which results from wordplay. This includes a policeman making a joke about arson (‘This was arson, one of you lot arson around’) and a comic use of ‘Kiss my artichoke’. At one point a character says ‘What the f…’, but the word stops after the initial ‘f’ sound.
Threat and horror
There are a number of comic scary scenes, although these are brief and balanced by reassuring humour. The ‘were-rabbit’ itself only threatens vegetables. There are some mild action sequences, including sight of a villain wielding a gun. However, any violence is slapstick in style and nobody is harmed. Even when a character appears to be about to die, he is quickly revived.
There are a few moments of mild sexual innuendo, including women holding round vegetables in front of their breasts, but these are entirely comic and silly. There is also some mild rude humour, including belching.
