September is proving to be the busiest month of the year so far, and in a good way. So I’m having to do a few posts in quick succession to catch up with various bits and pieces. I’ve already posted about the music and drama day I did a couple of weeks ago, and now I want to tell you a bit about my visits to Guildford and The Royal Academy Of Arts, and my holiday to Guernsey.
A couple of weeks ago I went to a music and drama day with East London Vision, at the Theatre Royal in Stratford. I haven’t done either of those things since school, so this was going to be something very different for me. But I felt sure it would be fun and interesting to try it out, especially as I was with a group of people I got on well with. And I was right, it was a really enjoyable day.
In this post and video I’m going to discuss my first experiences with audio description in London, for museums, galleries, theatre shows, cinema screenings and walking tours.
Following on from my post about being in the audience for Mock The Week on Tuesday night, I was also lucky enough to have a ticket for Channel 4’s The Last Leg on Friday night as well. Out of both the shows this week, this was the one I was looking forward to the most.
So, as with Mock The Week, I wanted to tell you a bit about my experience there, without giving away too many TV secrets. Just like that previous post, this isn’t sponsored or endorsed in any way by anybody connected with The Last Leg or SRO Audiences. These are just my personal opinions that I wanted to share with you, as it was a very new and exciting experience for me. And again, this is also discussed in my video about Being In A TV Audience.
This Tuesday I got to be in the audience for the BBC’s Mock The Week, which is recorded at the ITV Studios – go figure! I’ve never been in a TV audience before, so I was looking forward to what I hoped would be an amazing experience. And it was! And it was great to watch it back on BBC2 this evening as well. So I thought I’d tell you a bit about it, without giving away any secrets or spoilers for those who also want to go to the show.
This post isn’t sponsored or endorsed in any way by anyone connected with Mock The Week or SRO Audiences. Nobody’s asked me to do this, I just wanted to relate my experience, as it was very new and exciting for me.
This is also discussed in my video about Being In A TV Audience.
As well as the game nights and my trip to Alexandra Palace that I’ve written about recently, I’ve been doing a lot of other stuff as well. There doesn’t need to be full posts dedicated to every little thing, so I thought I’d group it all together into one long and varied post instead. I’ve broken it up with some photos and video links along the way, but you can see even more on my Youtube and Instagram pages too. Enjoy! 🙂
Happy Aniridia Day! 🙂
Today we’re celebrating people’s achievements and ambitions with Aniridia, as part of the Shining Success campaign, for which I edited a promo video I’m very proud of. There are also Facebook and Twitter pages for the day, where people are sharing their stories, photos and videos to mark the occasion, so please do check them out.
It’s already bringing people together with aniridia who have never met before, and helping to spread a positive message of positivity, support, solidarity and hope for the future. And if you want to find aniridia support groups, the links on my Disability Links page may help.
So this post is my contribution for the day, talking about my own achievements and ambitions, as someone living with aniridia. This is also available as a video as well.
