Get On Your Bikes And Head To ARC!

stockton cycling festival largeARC have two charming cycling themed shows on the horizon, in association with Stockton Cycling Festival.

As part of the festival, which is taking place from 23 – 26 June, you can head along to ARC on Friday 24 June for Ventoux, a show for serious cycling enthusiasts.

The show is inspired by the incredible and controversial race from Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani, which took place on Mont Ventoux – the most fearsome mountain encountered on the Tour de France. 2Magpies theatre company will restage the race using breath taking video accompaniment and a pair of road bikes, asking the question – how far will we go to succeed?

With little ones in tow, you can head along to watch a fantastic family show about friendships, discovering new cultures, and of course cycling, as JoJo and Billies Tour de France rides into town on Saturday 25 June.

Join JoJo, Billie and Albert as they jump on their (imaginary) bicycles to climb the Alps, dip their toes in the sea in Marseille, visit the cows in the Creuse, peer through the fog in Bretagne and finish in love filled Paris.

With bicycle percussion, bicycle choreography, bicycle acrobatics, bicycle puppetry and the bicycle race of the century. The story is told without words through live music, video, mime which all bring the wonderful story vividly to life.

Anyone travelling to Stockton for the last day of the Stockton Cycling Festival on Sunday 26 June will be able to park their bike at a safe designated ‘bike park’ at ARC.

The venue will also be serving some lunch specials, including any pizza or pasta and a pint for £6.50, or grab any cake and coffee for £2.95.
