The Festival Marquee, County Buildings Main Hall, and McNeillie Tent are all equipped with induction loop technology for the hard of hearing. Again in 2017, in association with Stagetext, the festival is trialling live subtitling, for people with hearing loss, on Saturday 23 September and Sunday 24 September in the County Buildings, Main Hall. Subtitled events are marked (S) in listings. Live subtitles are used in museums, galleries and other cultural venues for talks, tours and lectures. The speakers’ words are displayed openly on screens for talks and lectures, or appear on handheld tablets for tours. Learn more With generous support from The Mrs Winifred Ann Kennedy Trust.
