Edinburgh Deaf Festival

Edinburgh Deaf Festival is an accessible celebration of deaf culture, language and heritage. Our aim is to bring the arts to deaf audiences, giving deaf people access to festivals in a way that they haven’t had before. Our festival also gives mainstream audiences the opportunity to learn more about our rich deaf culture whilst enjoying a variety of performances.

Edinburgh Deaf Festival is brought to you by Deaf Action.
