Theatrau Ffwrnes, Llanelli

Visiting the Theatrau Ffwrnes as a disabled wheelchair user was an easy and pleasurable experience.

On booking tickets, I was able to secure allocated seating for wheelchair users, alongside my husband’s seat. The Box Office agent was extremely helpful and reminded me that I had a Hynt Card, which allowed me to book a free ticket for my husband, as he is my carer, or companion. This was a great reminder, as I usually forget I have one!

The Ffwrnes Theatre is located in the heart of Llanelli town centre. We parked in the East Gate car park, which is a short distance from the theatre. There are a number of disabled parking spaces for Blue Badge holders, and we had no issues in finding a suitable space. There was plenty of room to lower my wheelchair ramp and access my wheelchair from my vehicle.

Entering the theatre was very easy. It is a new building with wide doors and level access. It feels open and spacious and there was plenty of room for my wheelchair. We were guided to our seats (D20 and 21) and we enjoyed an excellent, close-up view of the stage.

Though we were on ground level, where there were accessible toilets, we also discovered that there are accessible toilets on all levels of the theatre.

We were also informed that an infrared hearing assistance system is in place throughout the theatre building for people with a hearing impairment. The theatre also welcomes Guide Dogs.

The 2022 Pantomime offers BSL signed performances as well as a specially adapted Relaxed Performance of the production for those who may benefit from a relaxed theatre environment. 

We felt that Theatrau Ffwrnes was an excellent place for disabled people to visit, and staff were more than happy to accommodate our needs. We will definitely be returning!
