We’re deep into the British summer now, we’ve had plenty of ☀️ but we’ve also had our fair share of 🌧 but can we really complain? I mean we’re used to it by now!
So with summer in full flow and there still plenty of time to relax and enjoy yourself we thought it would be a good opportunity to highlight some of the fantastic local and regional events that the Deaf community are putting on throughout the rest of the year. Ranging from the cheap and simple to the more extravagant, everything catered with you in mind! 😄
So with that in mind, we present to you the following BSL accessible events:

Halloween Quiz At Swindon Deaf Club
I was talking about the wonderful (or not depending on your stance) British summer not so long ago, well I’ve skipped to Autumn with this one and looking ahead to Halloween! 🎃
