We had one of our busiest year's yet and we are not stopping for the summer holidays.


To celebrate our 10th Birthday we are going to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. We would love to see you at Pleasance, Beside 10.30am each day of the Fringe for our heart warming show Moonbird, by Joyce Dunbar and Jane Ray.


We have been making a list of accessible shows on our social media feeds, and will keep sharing information about shows that we discover are accessible for Deaf and hearing families.


If you can not make the Fringe but want to support, please do continue to share, like and retweet our social media posts, spreading the word to new audiences.


We are also very excited to be coming back to London to get  working on our London Borough of Culture events, so we would love to see lots of families in Waltham Forest celebrating the brorough and accessible work.


If you are on your school holidays but thinking about back to school projects, do get into touch as we love to find creative and accessible ways to teach the curriculum,

so do continue to contact us with any tricky topics - we love a challenge!


Have a great summer everyone, and thank you for your continued support.


Marian Hoddy & Laura Goulden, Directors of Handprint Theatre
