Join us for a quiz night with a difference during Deaf Awareness Week 2018. This is more than your typical Pub Quiz. Expect a few twists and turns throughout the evening.

We will be supporting Hearing Dogs for Deaf People who provide invaluable support to deaf people in Hampshire. Find out more about them here: https://www.hearingdogs.org.uk/helping-deaf-people/


Quiz tickets cost £10 per person which includes a welcome drink and nibbles and a £5 donation to the charity. 
Meet in the Tiki Lounge upstairs in Orange Rooms from 6:30pm for a 7pm start.

Teams of up to five people. Come as a team, or as an individual and we'll put you in a great team.

 


About Deaf Awareness Week

There are about 9 million of people in the UK who are deaf. This can vary from a partial to a full loss of hearing. Some people can lip read, others rely on subtitles. Most Deaf people who use sign language use British Sign Language, or BSL. It’s a rich combination of hand gestures, facial expressions and body language. In fact, BSL isn’t simply English with hand signs, it is a different language with its own grammar and sentence construction.

The purpose of the Deaf Awareness Week is to:

Raise awareness within the community

Raise money for a deserving charity - Hearing Dogs for Deaf People
