Woman’s Hour are gearing up to do a special run of shows in partnership with Attitude Is Everything, a charity working to improve deaf and disabled people’s access to live music.

The band will be doing a tour of arts venues in the UK with a difference - sign language interpreters will take centre-stage for the sets. The show will also incorporate a specially commissioned video projected by artists Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin using previously unseen footage from the British Deaf Association archive. The shows will see Woman’s Hour perform a special project called ‘Seeing Voices. The band are trying out new material on the tour and the next one takes place on February 13 at visual arts venue, Firstsite, in Colchester. For more information, click here.
