  • Gala Performance of Made in Dagenham

    Don’t miss your chance to see a special performance of the uplifting musical comedy Made in Dagenham on 16 March – not only will you enjoy the show, you’ll also be supporting our work!

    Inspired by a true story and based on the smash-hit movie, Made in Dagenham is a musical comedy about friendship, love and why you must fight for what is right. 

    The musical was a smash-hit on the West End. Now, the Impact Theatre Company is bringing the show to the Arts Depot in Finchley, London. 

    On Friday 16 March, we’re proud to be hosting a gala performance of the musical, when all profits from the night will go towards supporting people confronting deafness, tinnitus and hearing loss. 

    Our Chief Executive, Paul Breckell, will be attending and speaking at the event, which promises to be a great night raising funds for our vital work. 

    Funny, touching and timeless, Made in Dagenham shows how ordinary people can do extraordinary things when they stand together. 

    You can do something extraordinary on 16 March by helping us confront deafness, tinnitus and hearing loss – and having a great night out!

    Fingersmiths in co-production with the New Wolsey Theatre.

    The Wheatsheaf Arms amateur rugby league team has never won a game. They don’t have enough players and they have no kit. Can Arthur, our hero, coach them to beat the mighty Cobbler’s Arms in a cup final?

    They need to beat Reg’s team The Cobblers Arms who aretop of the league, superbly fit, physically enormous and terrify every team they play. But how does Arthur train his new team? They are Deaf, he doesn’t sign and he only has 5 weeks to get his team into shape or he loses his house in the bet.

    This fast moving and witty re-telling of John Godber’s award-winning and much-loved play, Up ’n’ Under will delight audiences, bringing together Fingersmiths’ visual and physical storytelling with a cast of Deaf and hearing actors using British Sign Language and spoken English.

    All shows are BSL integrated and audio-described. Friday evening and Saturday matinee performances will be captioned.

    There will be a post-show discussion after the Friday performance that will be BSL interpreted.

  • Rambert

    BSL performance 28th February 2018 at The Nottingham Theatre Royale starting 19:30



    A Linha Curva is a hip-swinging, drum-beating, Olivier Award-winning party piece. It’s the spirit of Brazilian carnival recreated by choreographer Itzik Galili, with 28 dancers, four samba percussionists and a dazzling light show contributing to its infectious energy.

    Next you’ll be swept up by Symbiosis. This high-velocity celebration of the Rambert dancers’ skills is by internationally acclaimed dance-maker Andonis Foniadakis, with a new score by BAFTA and Ivor Novello Award-Nominated composer Ilan Eshkeri.

    Completing this triple bill is a dance theatre creation from rising star Ben Duke. Darkly funny and deeply moving, Goat dissects the pleasure and pain of performing. The work is inspired by the music and spirit of Nina Simone, with a selection of her best loved songs performed live on stage by jazz singer Nia Lynn.
    Full of energy, live music and spectacular dancing, this is a powerful programme from Britain’s national dance company.
