You may have already received the email below, however you’ll notice that one of my top picks is now different. I must apologise for my previous email in which I shared an event with you which did not include subtitles. As a charity we campaign strongly for subtitles to be included on all platforms – living in an inclusive world is what we strive for. It was an oversight and we are truly sorry.
I do hope that you will enjoy my top picks below for virtual entertainment and thank you for supporting Action on Hearing Loss.
With best wishes, Rachel
Information Line Manager
Attend top events – from home!
With many of us still uneasy about getting out and about and with the weather turning a little glum in some parts of the country, some of us might be feeling a little stuck for things to do.
Luckily, there are so many amazing events, shows, talks and tours out there for us to enjoy from the comfort of our homes! Here are my top picks. I hope you enjoy!
As always, I hope that you’re staying safe and keeping healthy.
