detailing any access or dietary requirements. You will need to bring a copy of this invitation and photo ID for entry.
If you think that I have overlooked anyone you feel will be interested in contributing to this event, please forward me their details in order that I can invite them. Attendees are by invitation only and will not be able to simply turn up, as spaces are limited and we need to know how many people to expect. However we are keen for as many members of the Deaf community to contribute as possible, so please do let me know if you are aware of others who may be keen to participate.
