Signing Sundays

Signing Sundays is our online initiative to get the nation signing.

Each week, an artist or representative from a cultural organisation videos themselves performing a Makaton sign for all of our social media followers and website visitors. All videos are accompanied by a short bio of the artist or organisation and any links (website, ticket booking link for upcoming events etc). Most previous participants have experienced a surge in likes/follows, website traffic, ticket sales and many more.

Don't worry! We send you all of the information you need, including a video of a member of our staff performing the sign you have been allocated.


To register your interest, just email our Artistic Director, Daniel Swift at, and he will send you all of the information you need.

Anyone can take part! As long as you're an artist or representative from a cultural organisation from any artform, we'd love to have you!

Please note: we do have a waiting list for Signing Sundays participants, so if you are hoping to promote a specific event through your signing video, please contact us well in advance.
