BOOKING FORM

 On this walk we go back to 1951 when the Festival of Britain took Londoners out of post war austerity to marvel at the latest innovations in art, design, industry and technology at a festival to celebrate the centenary of the Great Exhibition of 1851. Find out how this event was a catalyst for the regeneration of the entire South Bank which is today famous for its arts centre. We trace the surviving remnants of the festival including, two sculptures and the recently restored Royal Festival Hall. We view the post festival arts centres such as the National Theatre and finish with a great riverside panoramic view from the riverside walkway adjacent to the Oxo Tower.

How effective are hearing loops?

Those of us who have used a good working hearing loop with our hearing aids or cochlear implants, know just how helpful they are, but until now, we had no data to prove that.

This is a link to a study that has proved just how effective they are, even for people with normal hearing. Use this if you want to campaign for a loop to be fitted at a venue you use.

Understand your Audiogram

When you have a hearing test the sounds that you can hear are plotted on a graph, this is called an audiogram. You can ask for a copy of your audio-gram, and find out about your hearing loss. audiograms are explained in this link.
