The Riverfront aims to be accessible and welcoming to all and we are committed to making your visit as easy and enjoyable as possible.
Though it is not essential, disabled people are advised to book in advance so we can readily provide any assistance. Disabled people who are unable to attend without assistance may also bring a personal assistant along with them for free, if they have registered with HYNT.

HYNT: Art and Culture is for everyone and we try to make every visit as enjoyable as possible. The Riverfront has signed up to the Hynt scheme. Hynt is a national scheme that works with theatres and arts centres across Wales to make things clear and consistent. Hynt Cardholders are entitled to a free ticket for a personal assistant or carer at all the venues in the scheme. The Hynt website www.hynt.co.uk provides a range of useful information on the scheme and explains how it all works.
