Who should attend?

The event is free and open to everyone to try out equipment and learn more about the support on offer to help improve the quality of life for those with sensory impairment, such as hearing or sight loss. It's a great opportunity for peer support, networking, gaining knowledge and sharing information with others and is important to all. It is now the biggest event of its type in the country. In 2018 76 organisations displayed information and equipment. More than 750 people attended the event in Shrewsbury.

Getting there

Entrance is free, and there will be a free dial-a-ride shuttle bus every half an hour from Shrewsbury Train Station to the Shrewsbury Sports Village, starting at 9:30am. Parking at the Sports Village site will also be free.
