Deaf Day 2019 celebrations - Saturday 27th April 

100 years of Deaf Education 

This year Deaf Day promises to be even more special as 2019 marks the centenary of City Lit and also 50 years since our Centre for Deaf Education was established.

Deaf Day has become one of the biggest events in the deaf community calendar with deaf, hard-of-hearing and hearing people of every age from across the UK coming to City Lit to socialise and celebrate deaf issues. 

Come and join us on Saturday 27 April, we have a great range of exhibition stands, BSL interpreted taster courses and workshops taking place throughout the day as well as a crèche for the kids. So there's something for everyone.  

Admission is free – all welcome!
