Sense, the national deafblind charity, is hosting a free, fully accessible day of fun for children with sight and hearing loss and their families at the Victoria and Albert museum on Saturday 27 September from 11am.
‘Rock, Pop and Charming’ is a British Sign Language interpreted performance celebrating the 1980s music scene. After the performance a play session will follow where kids can play with instruments and costumes to create their own pop concert. Families will also have the chance to explore the museum and discover all the curious and wonderful things and the hands-on exhibits in the galleries.
Nic Vogelpoel, Head of Arts & Wellbeing at Sense, said:
“We are thrilled to be working with the V&A to develop accessible opportunities for children and families experiencing sensory impairments. Being able to participate in interactive performances and to engage with the museum’s vast and impressive collection is a unique opportunity that all children should have.”
Sense Family Day: Saturday 27 October, 11-3pm at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Cromwell Road, London SW7 2RL.
