Art and culture is for everyone. But if you have an impairment or a specific access requirement, getting to see it isn’t always easy.  Often, visiting a theatre or an arts centre can be more complicated than just booking tickets and choosing what to wear. 

Hynt is a national scheme that works with theatres and arts centres across Wales to make things clear and consistent. It’s also a resource for anyone who needs specific access information to plan a trip to the theatre. We are part of the Hynt scheme as we believe it offers our disabled customers the very best practice in fair ticketing policy and accessibility.

Hynt is a Membership Card

Hynt cardholders are entitled to a ticket free of charge for a personal assistant or carer at all the theatres and arts centres participating in the scheme. Click here to find out whether you or the person you care for are eligible for a card or click here to apply.

Hynt is a Resource

www.hynt.co.uk provides a range of useful information and guidance on the scheme and how it works throughout its network of venues. It’s also a resource for anyone interested in information or news around access and the arts. The site features listings of all accessible performances as well as providing up to date access venue information to help you plan your visit. Through regular e-updates, the Hynt website and social media platforms Hynt provides relevant and up to date arts and theatre access information. 

We will be happy to talk you through the scheme and our part in it.  If you would like to speak to a member of staff, please contact 01970 623232.
