Lowestoft Signing Choir

11th July 2019

On 10 July, members of the Lowestoft Signing Choir performed for Members of Parliament and their staff in Parliament. 

Founded in 2003, the Lowestoft Signing Choir raises Deaf Awareness in the local community, and promotes the use of British Sign Language, through performances of popular songs, hymns and carols in sign language.

The performance follows a long campaign by Daniel Jillings from Lowestoft, to urge the Department for Education to bring forward a British Sign Language GCSE.

Peter Aldous MP said:

“I was delighted to welcome the Lowestoft Signing Choir to Portcullis House, who do brilliant work in throwing a spotlight on Deaf Awareness nationally.

Members of the choir Daniel Jillings and his mother Ann Jillings have campaigned tirelessly to secure a BSL GCSE, which would enable deaf students to sit a GCSE in their first language, greatly improving the opportunities of deaf children up and down the country.”
