Pay What You Decide Info
Running time: 1 hr approx.
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 preview performance written and directed by Umar Butt
You’re all invited to a wedding. Get your glad rags on and prepare for the party of the year. Grab a drink as you arrive, sing along with your hosts, and take your chances as you test your knowledge in a love-themed quiz.
Join Umar Butt and Alberto Dumba as they ask the question, ‘What is love?’
“It unites us, and divides us
It excites us, and entices us”
Love is complex. It can mean so many different things to different people, especially when you’re from a completely different culture, religion or upbringing.
Through personal stories, a look behind the science, and through conversation with one another and the audience, Umar and Alberto will start to scratch away at the surface of this question.
This show is all about connection. A nice sit down together full of laughter, music, dance, and storytelling. Take part in a journey that explores and celebrates the many forms love can take and why it matters to all of us so much.
