Shows With Interpreters for Deaf Audiences at the 2022 Free Festival

Thanks to funding from the Fringe Resilience fund, for the first time we are able to open up access to free and PWYC shows for deaf audiences.


The Following performances of shows will have an on-stage BSL Interpreter. Please click on the show title to see further information on the show, and also book PWYC tickets for that show if they are available.

We hope to add a few more shows to this list - so check back here in to see updates!

Deaf BSL users can arrive early and go to the head of the queue, so they get the right seat to see the interpreters.
