Deaf Summer Playscheme and Programme


We are still based in Ambler Primary School, however our space has been relocated due to building works at the school during the summer. Our access to the school will be from the back gate on Romilly Road.

From Finsbury Park Station, turn right on Prah Road and keep going until you enter Romilly Road.

Alternatively, from Blackstock Road you turn on Ambler Road and then turn again on Romilly Road.

There will be signs to help them find their way to the new entrance.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need further information and please do share this out to many people on your contact list.

Kind Regards,

Dear Laycock,

I have launched a captioning service at the Puppet Theatre Barge (, located in Little Venice.


I will be captioning the performance of The Hare and the Tortoise and other tales from Aesop on 18 June at 3pm to make it accessible to deaf children. We also have a hearing loop in place.


I am contacting you to ask if there’s any way you can spread the word among deaf children. Details can be found here:


I’d be happy to offer a couple of complimentary tickets if you have a raffle or anything like that before the date.


Looking forward to hearing from you.


All the best,

Dear Sir/Madam,

I’m hoping to set up a charity that provides workshops for disabled, Deaf and mainstream children to take part in workshops in the London and surrounding areas. I believe there are a distinct lack of opportunities for children in the arts especially.

I hope to provide and inclusive art and craft service for children of all backgrounds from the ages of 2-18 years old. With a view to encouraging their art and expressive skills, and maybe unearth some children with a real gift for the arts in the London area. Eventually running a magazine to showcase the work of creative disabled people all over the UK.

I would be grateful if you would ask parents to complete my questionnaire via any online newsletter or social media groups you have.

Many thanks in advance

Elina Sturno
