Catch up

Last orders were called and you didn’t get to the bar in time! Don’t worry, we have a selection of some of our previous sessions below!

At The Staying Inn it is always our goal to make our sessions as accessible as possible. However, due to the limitations of our volunteer team who aren’t experts, and technology sometimes being challenging, some of our recorded sessions are a work in progress! We have a mix of audio, transcripts, videos and auto-captions. Unfortunately we have found that most British Sign Language interpreters do not wish to have live interpreting recorded and shared, especially given the challenges of interpreting remotely online. We are continuing to work with our interpreters to find solutions.
