No, you will not need to collect or show your ticket.
We will not abandon the event unless in cases of extreme bad weather such as high winds. Once underway a performance will continue even if it does begin to rain, and the company will make every effort to complete the performance.
The performance starts at 8.30pm and should last 1 hour in total.
Arka is suitable for all ages. However, we would ask you to consider whether very small children will be comfortable with smoke, fire and pyrotechnics.
During the performance there may be moments of flashing lights, fire and use of theatrical haze.
There will be a viewing platform for wheelchair users and those people with mobility impairments on a first come first served basis. There will also be a ‘Safe Space’ open for those with additional needs, which is a sensory environment, with low sound and with low lighting levels.
Waterdale main road will be closed, but all other routes through the town should remain open as normal. We recommend parking in the Civic Quarter Car Park or Council House Car Park.
No there will be no seating. This is an outdoor performance and you may move with the action around Sir Nigel Gresley Square. Please wear appropriate footwear and bring umbrellas if necessary. Please do not bring chairs as they will impede the inevitable movement of audience members around the square and may cause a hazard.
Yes, Cast will be open as usual for use of its normal public facilities.
We regret that only Guide Dogs are allowed to attend the performances. Please be aware there may be effects, pyrotechnics and amplified music.
