Our Outreach team took their strand down to Southampton last week to spread the BSL Zone message at Deaf World 2013!

Around 500 people attended the event, and ours was just one of 25 stalls there. As well as information stalls, workshops were held at the back of the hall.

You can see Steven Wynne, our Outreach Worker, telling us how the day went in BSL on the video on the top right-hand side of this page.

Steven said: "We showed lot of short clips from the BSL Zone in the past year, including upcoming episodes of The Hub and Punk Chef. We also showed off our website using an iPad and Joybox!"

Our Head of Production and Distribution, Maggie Swinfen, was also there, and you can see photos of the team and the audience members they met on the lower right-hand side of this page!

Steven added: “The event went well and there were lots of people coming to our stall to give us feedback and criticism, too!"

Among other comments, our viewers said:

  • “I have always impressed with your BSL Zone. I used to live in Luxembourg and your programmes are the only one that I can access!’
  • “I am hooked! BSL Zone is incredible and keep it up!!”
