The deaf pop star Fletch will teach participants how to perform two well-known songs in BSL, at a workshop for deaf and hearing people alike

Learn to perform two songs in British Sign Language at an event hosted by a nationally famous deaf pop star in Exmouth on Saturday, May 4.

Jane Fletcher, known as Fletch, is an inspiring 'sign song performer' well-known in the deaf community. She is passionate about communicating the emotion and meaning of songs to deaf audiences, by expressing the lyrics in sign language and using her movements and facial expressions.

The workshop is aimed at deaf and hearing people, bringing them together through music and sign. It has been organised by Sharon Brown from BSL Enabling, a business which has been campaigning and educating the Exmouth community in British Sign Language, partly to offer support to the students of the Deaf Academy which is due to open in April 2020.

The workshop takes place from 1pm-3pm at Brixington Community Church. Tickets are £35 and no experience of BSL is needed. To book, contact sharon@bslenabling.co.uk
