We are delighted to introduce the Signature Hall of Fame!
This is a one-off event, where we will come together for Signature’s 40th-year celebration, recognising those people who have gone above and beyond to improve deaf communication over this time.
Over the 40 years we have seen so many inspiring stories and people doing amazing things to improve access for deaf people from the historic BSL Bill, the potential GCSE in BSL and Rose Ayling-Ellis winning BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing. We believe many of these people deserve to be included in the Signature Hall of Fame.
The event will take place on Friday 18th November 2022 at the National Football Museum in Manchester.
Nominations for inductees to the hall of fame will open on Monday 4th April and will close at 5pm on Monday 29th July 2022.
The shortlist will then be drawn up by a panel of judges, those lucky nominees will be invited as a guest of Signature to the event to celebrate.
Lindsay Foster, Executive Director at Signature said “we really wanted to come together to celebrate what has been achieved over the last 40 years in the sector. So many people and organisations have achieved so much and we want to honour that.
It’s exciting to have an event to look forward to where we’ll be able to welcome friends again after a few challenging years.”
Since this blog post, nominations have been taken and the shortlist has been announced. For the latest information, see our Hall of Fame page.
