Disabled Access Day is a nationwide initiative run by Euan's
Guide to highlight venues across the UK whichh offer
accessible events for the disabled community. Having been
part of Disabled Access Day since last year, Borough Market
has made significant changes to its accessibility to the
deaf community, by providing a BSL signed cookery
demonstration once a month. Borough Market will be hosting a
live cookery demonstration with MasterChef 2015 finalist
(and BSL Level 2 interpreter) Tony Rodd, with registered BSL
signer Ben LeGrys on hand to interpret for the deaf
community. Tony will be showcasing a winning menu without
the pressure of MasterChef judges being present, bringing
along his passion for playing with texture and presentation.
In the pod next door, regular demo chef Celia Brooks will be
running a blindfolded tasting activity, showing visitors how
the taste of the Market ingredients' is altered when you
can�t rely on your sight. Go along and challenge yourself to
guess as many Market delights as you can. This will be
running simultaneously between 12 noon and 2pm.
