Deaf Day

2021 event date: CANCELLED

City Lit have made the difficult decision to cancel Deaf Day planned for on 18 April 2021.

We have taken this decision with the health and wellbeing of our community in mind and given the volume of attendees on this amazing day and in light of the current Covid-19 status. We realise that this will be disappointing, however, we hope that you understand why we have taken this decision. 

We will continue to monitor the situation over the coming months and may look to host a similar event later in the year.  If we do, we will of course, be back in touch.

Come and celebrate Deaf Day with us on Saturday 18 April 2020, 10:00 - 16:00 at City Lit.

We have a great range of exhibition stands, BSL interpreted taster courses and workshops taking place throughout the day as well as crèche for the kids. There’s something for everyone at City Lit’s Deaf Day 2020!

Deaf Day is the UK’s leading event for the Deaf community. Organised by City Lit’s Centre for Deaf Education, it’s a celebration of Deaf culture and an opportunity to see old friends and make new friends. 2020 will be the 24th City Lit Deaf Day.

Admission is free – all welcome!
