City Bridge Trust Access Programme

Tags: London, Sign Interpreted

We are thrilled to have recently heard that The City Bridge Trust are going to support a three year programme of work enabling us to develop access to Fuel's London based work for deaf and blind audiences. We started to research sign interpretation in 2009 in a year long pilot project supported by Awards for All, during which time we worked to understand how to deliver BSL interpreted performances in an artistically motivated way. We engaged the artist with interpreter Martin Roberts, we set up a rehearsal and we integrated Martin into the performance.  We received fantastic feedback:

“want to see more shows like this!” Audience member, The 14th Tale, Manchester

“understanding how to sign interpret our show for children was fascinating and inspiring.” David Harradine, Artistic Director of Fevered Sleep

We were very excited by this work and are so pleased that we're able to continue the project.  The plan is to build on our learning by developing our sign interpretations, as well as started to investigate how to create original audio descriptions.  We want to deliver orginal and exciting accessible work and we want to engage deaf and blind consultants and deaf and blind advisors in order to achieve this.  If you are interested in getting involved, please have a look at our get involved page.  We'd love to hear from you.

And please look out for a brand new access page on this website which we're in the middle of creating at the moment.  There'll be loads more details on the project, information on upcoming access performances, and general access information for Fuel shows.

A huge thank you to The City Bridge Trust for making this work possible.

    In Stockholm, go to the Vasa and Nobel Museums. They are hands down two fo the coolest muuemss I have EVER been to. I could have spent the whole day just wandering in each of them. Go to the palace and if you're a student, ask for the student discount. When I went it was less than a dollar for admission. It was totally worth it too. I LOVE Stockholm. Just wander around there, it's such a beautiful city you'll probably just want to spend lots of time staring at it and being amazed.For London, I used to live there and could write a novel about the cool things you can see and do there. It's hands down my very favourite city. For good pubs, I always ahd a good time at the Old Blue Last just off Old street in Hackney (I think). It's a younger crowd, but I enjoyed it. For good foor, Pizza express can be found anywhere in the city and it's decent enough. Be sure to eat Indian Food there too. I used to like getting my curry on Brick Lane (while there, check out the bagel bakery.I can't remember the name, but it's SO GOOD). My very favourite ice cream place in the city (well, gelato technically) is a little place on Charing Cross Rd. called Ciao! Gelateria. It has a giant ice cream cone outside and it's right by Leicester Square. It's easy enough to miss, but if you hapepn to see it, go inside. It's totally worth it.
