Head to the Roald Dahl Museum on Saturday 12 March for BSL-signed stories and talks, and try out their revolutionary new sign language app, Signly.
Join in with signed storytelling from Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes at 11.30am, 12.30pm and 1.30pm, and find out just how Roald Dahl set about writing his swashboggling stories on one of the signed Writing Hut Talks at 11am, 12pm and 1pm.
The sessions are free with Museum entry and suitable for anyone to attend whether deaf or hearing. There’s no need to book and visitors can attend as many sessions as they like.
You may also like to try out the Museum’s new sign language app, Signly. You can download the app before your visit (or while at the Museum using the free WiFi), and use it to unlock filmed BSL-signed information around the galleries by scanning QR codes.
There are over 20 Signly points around the Museum – it’s like having your own interpreter in your pocket.
The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre can be found at: 81-83 High Street, Great Missenden, Bucks, HP16 0AL
The phone number is 01494 892192 and the website is www.roalddahl.com/museum
