Deaf Day 2024
The event reflects the rich and vibrant Deaf culture, where visitors meet old friends and make new ones, find information, and network with individuals from across the UK and Europe. This year we will have a variety of taster courses on offer, as well as a range of exhibitors. We will also welcome back the Deaf Mosaic exhibition by deaf photographer Stephen Iliffe who celebrates the UK deaf community’s astonishingly diverse mosaic of class, ethnicity, diversity, religion and different ways of life.
Deaf Day is a free event, everyone is welcome!

About City Lit's Centre for Deaf Education
City Lit has provided support for Deaf people right from our establishment, in 1919. Some of the first courses ever offered by City Lit were lipreading classes for deafened soldiers returning from World War I. Over the years, we have grown to become an internationally-renowned Centre for Deaf Education with a wide range of provision – it is the largest centre of its kind in Europe. Our staff is a mixed group of deaf and hearing professionals; all highly skilled in their own areas of specialist expertise.
