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.

Winner of the 2018 Hodgkiss Award, Wrestling the Walrus tells of a series of meetings between a man in his late sixties and a woman in her thirties. Spotting the man sitting alone on a park bench, the woman decides to share her lunch with him. The next day the same thing happens.
As their meetings continue they share stories from their lives, but the man becomes a little unsettled and – perhaps that first chance encounter was no accident.
A new play about companionship, connections and the millions of tiny memories that make up someone’s history.
Expect a feast for the senses that weaves together performance with live lyrical music, animation and projected film.

Never been to a 154 Collective show, and want to know what to expect?
It’s a bit like being at the cinema. Our shows are full of projection with big images; like a film taking over the stage. It’s also a bit like being at a gig as we have three musicians on stage playing live throughout. We don’t mind if you nip out to go to the loo or just want to take 5 mins out of the space. Or, if you turn to your friend and say, “do you think she’s…”, it’s all part of your night, or day, out.
The performance on Wed 10 Jul will be BSL interpreted
