On Sat 13 February 2016, Cutty Sark will be running its first ever Sea SIGNs event for Deaf and hearing families. All events will either be BSL-led accompanied by voice-over interpreters, or delivered by spoken facilitators and supported by BSL interpreters, so they are accessible to both Deaf and hearing visitors.
Events on board include storytelling on the, ’Tween Deck and Cutty Sark’s ever popular actor performer, Captain Woodget will be entertaining visitors on the Main Deck. Under the ship, visitors can learn how to write a coded message using signal flags and design their own flag in our fun family workshop. As part of the Sea SIGNs event, deaf historian John Wilson will be returning to the ship to deliver tours of the Cutty Sark and her history in BSL (pre-booked ticket holders only).
We hope to introduce new families to the ship and welcome old friends too - a special goody bag and café voucher especially for this event will be available for families attending (subject to availability). All events, with the exception of John Wilson’s tour, are drop-in and free with admission - come on board and take part!
