what is hynt?
Hynt is a new national access scheme that works with theatres and arts centres in Wales to make sure there is a consistent offer available for visitors with an impairment or specific access requirement, and their Carers or Personal Assistants. This site will tell you all you need to know about Hynt: who it’s for; what it provides; and how to become a member.
If you need support or assistance to attend a performance at a theatre or arts centre then you may be eligible to join hynt.
Each year we hold a symposium for our venue staff and other professionals working in the sector.
A Warm Welcome to All, Friday 28th February 2020, Park and Dare Theatre, Treorchy
Are you relaxed about relaxed performances? Do you know your quiet spaces from your Sonic Story?
Welcome to our symposium in partnership with Taking Flight Theatre Company, hosted by RCT Theatres and funded by Arts Council of Wales.

In the afternoon Andrew Tinley, the Access Manager at Derby Theatres, will present on The Barrier isn't Access - an exloration of simple, effective tools to make venues more relaxed in their engagement with artists, young people, staff and audiences.
Delegates will leave with practical ways to make changes in their organisation or artistic practice. This is an all day event with tea and coffee provided. 10am - 5pm.information for groups become a member
