Hynt cardholder scheme
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.
If you have an impairment or specific access requirement, or care for someone that does, then Hynt applies to you. 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.
