Deaf-friendly tour - VE Day

09 May 2020

Our specialist deaf-friendly tours are designed to welcome visitors who are deaf or hard of hearing.

As part of Deaf Awareness week we are celebrating Victory in Europe, in the traditional style of communal singing. Come and join in a participation experience of sign to sing, laughter and fun with our qualified British Sign Language interpreter. 

On 8 May 1945, Prime Minister Winston Churchill made an announcement on the radio at 3pm that the war in Europe had come to an end, following Germany’s surrender the day before. During the following days a feeling of euphoria and celebration captured the hearts of local people and the need to celebrate on the streets of Britain.

Join our Deaf Friendly tours facilitated by a qualified British Sign Language interpreter for deaf and hard of hearing visitors. The BSL interpreter works alongside one of our friendly costumed demonstrators who will support the tour by spoken interpretation. Specialist tours take place once a month on a Saturday from 2pm -3.30pm. Each tour begins with an introductory welcome to the Museum in the main visitor reception at 2pm.
