A message from our colleagues at the V&A:
Family Art Fun Pop-up Performance –BSL Interpreted
Did you know that the V&A Museum in London has BSL performances especially for families?
Performances are interpreted by signer Matthew Wainright from Deaf Umbrella.
Matthew is completely involved in the action of each story, interacting with the performers and the audience throughout. “Working at the V&A is a rich and rewarding experience. I have worked alongside many talented performers, exploring together the varied ways in which sign language can enrich and deepen the performance for deaf and hearing children alike. I am excited to see where the signed performances go in the future.” Matthew Wainright from Deaf Umbrella.
BSL interpretation supported by The Lord Leonard and Lady Estelle Wolfson Foundation.
Pop-up Performance takes place on Saturdays and in the holidays at 11.00, 13.00 & 15.00. Performance duration approximately 30 minutes.
