An ace nights sleep and a huge breakfast sees me feeling refreshed and ready as Day 2 begins at the convention. Coffee in hand I join the rest of the delegates in the Bristol suite for a "wake up" session with David Ellington of VS1 Productions.

The entire session is signed in British Sign Language

David is an actor, performer, presenter and is also profoundly deaf. He uses this session to explain the history and role of BSL within the community. He is a true role model for young deaf people aspiring to become performers.

David leads a basic lesson in British Sign Language and shortly after the Bristol suite is full of bleary-eyed delegates signing their names and having simple conversations with one another.

What a great way to start the day!
