The Hynt Card
Hynt is a national card scheme that entitles cardholders to a ticket free of charge for personal assistants or carers across participating theatres and venues in Wales. It is also a resource for anyone who needs specific access information to plan a trip to the theatre, as their website provides relevant and up to date arts updates.
The Hynt website is on the following link:
Hynt is an Arts Council of Wales initiative managed by Creu Cymru in partnership with Diverse Cymru and aims to be a single national access scheme for disabled customers and their carers.
In Wales, Creu Cymru is a development agency for the arts and Diverse Cymru is an organisation committed to supporting people faced with all aspects of inequality and discrimination..
At elliotshill as we plan our excursions to art centres and theatres, especially for the oncoming pantomime season having a Hynt card for those we support will be a real advantage.
