Using Signly around the galleries

Head to the Roald Dahl Museum on Saturday 12 March for BSL signed stories and talks, and try out their new sign language app, Signly.

Helen from the Museum’s learning team will be delivering signed sessions from 11am. Join in with signed storytelling from Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes at 11.30am, 12.30pm and 1.30pm, and find out about Roald Dahl’s writing routine on one of the signed Writing Hut Talks at 11am, 12pm and 1pm.

The drop-in sessions are free with Museum entry and suitable for anyone to attend whether deaf or hearing. There’s no need to book and visitors can attend as many sessions as they like.

Visitors may also like to try out the Museum’s new sign language app, Signly. You can download the app before your visit (or while at the Museum using the free WiFi), and use it to unlock BSL signed information around the Museum by scanning QR codes. There are over 20 Signly points around the Museum, it’s like having your own interpreter in your pocket.

The Museum’s Swashboggling Signed Stories Day is part of Disabled Access Day. You can find out about accessibility at the Museum here, and find information about general admission and visiting here.
