Blackpool Tower, the Imperial War Museum and Edinburgh Zoo. Scottish Parliament, Tate Britain and York Castle Museum. What do all these places have in common? They are just a handful of the hundreds of venues that have signed up to take part in Disabled Access Day 2017!
The initiative that absolutely doesn’t discriminate and is inclusive for all to get involved. Whether you sell coffee and cake, offer beds for sleepy heads, showcase art, agriculture and animals or make huge political decisions, you can be involved in a weekend that is open to all to celebrate disability and accessible venues throughout the UK!
On the 10 to the 12 of March, venues all over the country (and elsewhere!) are opening their doors to accessibility and inclusion, and putting on #AccessDay events like no other. There will be BSL interpreters at theatre performances, audio tours of spectacular exhibitions, discounted stays at accessible accommodations and, of course, many good old fashioned Disabled Access Day cuppas to be had!
