Here is some information about our forthcoming Audio Description events at Tate Britain happening in July, August and September
John Constable: Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadow
Monday 16th July at 10.30am for refreshments, tour starts at 11.00am
Join audio describers Gill Cutbill and Marcus Dickey Horley for a tour which compares Constable’s painting of Salisbury Cathedral with Turner’s painting of Caligula’s palace.
What a contrast! Like fire and ice.
We will be able to handle some objects from the historical period of these paintings, a replica of the frame, and a raised image with braille will be available for everybody to keep.

Another visit to All Too Human
Monday 20th August at 10.30am for refreshments, tour starts at 11.00am
Last time we audio described this exhibition we realised that we still had so much more to describe, so here is another chance to hear descriptions of a more inclusive range of the paintings on display
Audio Description Guide: Marta Cappella
Monday 17th September at 10.30am for refreshments, tour starts at 11.00am
A Common Ground: a tour of the responsive sculptures and vegetable gardens at Tate Britain which should have come nicely into harvest by mid-September.
Audio Description Guides: Annie Bedford and Laurence Van der Noorda
A free picnic lunch in the garden will be provided after the tour
We are greatly looking forward to seeing you, there is no need to book, just come along to the meeting point in the Manton Studio between 10.30 and 11.00am where we will be waiting to greet you.
Stools and hearing equipment provided for your comfort
With my very best wishes
Marcus Dickey Horley
Curator of Public Programmes and Visitor Experience Manager
