Important announcement – 10 June 2020
It is with regret that the British Deaf History Society has to announce that it is leaving its current premises at Empire Court, Warrington with effect from Tuesday 23 June 2020.
This means that the Deaf Museum will be temporarily closed, until such a time as we are able to reopen in the New Year in our new location which we are unable to confirm at the moment as negotiations are still in process.
In the meantime, all BDHS furniture, museum cabinets, archives, artefacts and library will be placed in temporary storage. This has been an unfortunate consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic and the BDHS is not alone in being severely impacted, in common with many other small museums.
The Deaf History Journal will continue to be printed (next issue Summer 2020, followed by Winter 2020). The Editorial Board consisting of Peter Jackson, Melinda Napier and Alison Coyle (of Deaf History Scotland) will continue to work on these two issues and contributions to the Journal should be addressed to the email address below.
The BDHS secretarial services will operate temporarily from the Company Secretary’s home until the BDHS office reopens.
An Information Circular will be issued to all members as soon as more information is confirmed regarding relocation and reopening.

Our BDHS shop is still open. You can order online, but we will post your order when it is safe to do so, so there may be a delay in receiving your order. We thank you for your patience.
Thank you for your patience and be safe.
