Our specialist deaf-friendly tours are designed to welcome visitors who are deaf or hard of hearing.
Come and meet the women who helped shaped the history of the Black Country.
“Each for Equal” is the theme for this year’s International Women’s Day. We will be celebrating women’s domestic and working life, revealing challenging stereotypes from Pit Bonk Wenches to domestic working women, you will discover the grafters and unsung heroines from the past.
Join our Deaf Friendly tours facilitated by a qualified British Sign Language interpreter for deaf and hard of hearing visitors. The BSL interpreter works alongside one of our friendly costumed demonstrators who will support the tour by spoken interpretation.
