Disability Awareness Day Live
Sunday 12th September 2021
Disability Awareness Day has five strands interwoven into a colourful, inspiring, fun and informative day out. Revisit this page for our exciting 2021 plans this year.
Over 500 exhibitor spaces were booked by organisations including voluntary, statutory and business sectors all working to a common goal of "Promoting Independence Throughout Life & Work", with support groups and services, equipment, transport, technology, holidays, benefits, employment, education, training, mobility, leisure, recreation, sport and much more.
The DAD Sports zone offers chances to ‘have a go’ at participating in Scuba Diving in our on-site pool with kit and instructors from Cheshire Scuba Academy. We also offer Golf, Football, Tai Chi, Wheelchair Basketball, Rugby League - physical disability, learning disability, and wheelchair. On site will also be Sightbox (sports for people who are blind or visually impaired). All activities are supported by qualified coaches and instructors. Plus there will be information on how you can get involved in local weekly activities.
There is an exciting programme of performing arts in the Arts Marquee with audience seating for up to 400 people. The 2021 line up will include nationally acclaimed Ella Together and Warrington BSL Signing Choir, plus Creating Adventures, Dream Team Drama, Warrington West Concert Band, Bridgewater Singers, Wired for Sound and rock band Undead For Hollywood as well as much much more.
A marquee will be dedicated to our newest addition to the DAD lineup, our Silent Disco which offers visitors the opportunity to wear wireless headphones (supplied) and select from three channels of music at the volume of their choice.
The Main Arena line up for 2021 will include Katumba Drumming, the Reach Sled Dogs, Vale Royal Falconry, brass bands, Rugby League demonstrations and Warrington Cheer Storm and much much more.
Children's Entertainment includes something for all abilities with all the fun of the fair provided by Chadwick's Family Fairground Rides. Walton Hall Rangers will be pleased to see you visiting the Walton Hall Zoo.
As you can see it will be an action packed day for those many thousands of people who make their way to Walton Hall Gardens on the 12th of September!
