Originally formed in 1997 “Dee Sign” Choir performs in British Sign Language to music. British Sign Language (BSL) is the official language of Deaf people in the UK. They translate the words of many popular songs into BSL and perform them at events in and around Chester.
The Choir is made up of parents of Deaf children, students of BSL, volunteers and members of the local Deaf Community. As they perform mostly in the Chester area our name is a combination of the river “Dee” and what we do best….. “Sign”. We hope that Dee Sign Choir will encourage more people to learn BSL and become involved with the local Deaf Community.
The theme of the day is purple to raise awareness of Chester’s Purple Tuesday Campaign – a change programme for organisations of all sizes from all sectors to get involved in, with the common goal of improving the customer experience for disabled people 365 days a year.
