Rock, pop and sign language

BSL interpreted performance

Do you want to learn how to dance like 80’s icon Adam Ant or try on an 18th century wig and learn how to bow/ curtsey like the king’s courtiers?

This summer and autumn we have a number of British Sign Language Interpreted (BSL) interactive performances for families as part of our regular Saturday’s Pop up Performance programme.

Our interpreter Matt, from Deaf Umbrella, will join our team of performers, to enhance the experience for everyone.

Why not make a family day of it and explore the rest of the museum while you’re here. We have back-packs and trails you can pick up to help you discover all the curious and wonderful things we have at the Museum. There are also dedicated hands-on exhibits in the galleries.

Here’s the list of the BSL performances coming up:

Performances are at 11.00, 13.00 and 15.00
