Edinburgh Deaf Festival

We’re delighted to bring the Edinburgh Deaf Festival back for 2024. Edinburgh Deaf Festival is an accessible celebration of deaf culture, language and heritage. Join us for a variety of performances and events over 10 jam-packed days. This year, we will host over 60 events, including theatre, comedy, workshops, tours and exhibitions. All performances will be accessible to deaf and hearing audiences through BSL, BSL/English interpretation, or captions.

Our aim is to give deaf people access to the arts in a new and exciting way, whilst giving mainstream audiences the opportunity to immerse themselves in our rich culture. This is a festival for everyone.
