British Sign Language interpretation

Garry Slack and his friend Olli the Monkey offer a fun and relaxed way to learn sign language using signed songs and nursery rhymes, with signs sourced directly from British Sign Language.

Sign Language is now used in many schools, nurseries and playgroups to improve the communication skills of all children whether hearing or deaf. Aimed at all children and their parents, this is a fun and interactive session that must not be missed!

Garry Slack is the author and creator of the critically acclaimed Learn to Sign with Olli books including the recently released Learn to Sign About Nature with Olli.
