Join WDDA for some Festive Fun on Saturday 15th December 2018!

Join us at Bournemouth Deaf Club on Saturday 15th December 2018 for a very special BSL interpreted performance from the fabulous Mark Stickland, The Magical Storybox!

We will also have face painting* and glitter tattoos* with the fantastic Rainbow Arts Dorset CIC, and a festive ‘Sign-a-Long’ with our award winning sign choir, Significance.

We’re aiming to bring hearing and Deaf families and children together to help breakdown some of the barriers to communication and what better way to introduce families to BSL than to learn a festive song and simple signs, and perform the song TOGETHER!

You’ll have lots of fun while helping Wiltshire and Dorset Deaf Association to raise money to support our work teaching Deaf parents of young pupils to deliver Deaf Awareness & Communication training to local Nursery and Primary Schools in Dorset.

Whilst the Magic Show is free to attend donations are very welcome. Minimum suggested donation: £3 per family.

Thank you to Interpreters Dorset for generously donating their time and resources to support this event.

Please note: BBC South Today will be filming at this event.
