Dining in Darkness in Deafening Silence at Mother India

Posted: Monday, June 29, 2015 - 12:17:54 PM

Deafblind Scotland invited guests to experience having a dual sensory impairment for an evening at our Dining in Darkness in Deafening Silence event. Diners’ senses were put to the ultimate test at one of Scotland’s most famous Indian Restaurants, Mother India, as part of a unique sensory event.

It was met with great approval and enlightened guests to many of the restrictions deafblind people encounter. Diners’ said:

“Although we were all laughing at our awkwardness and the fact we were shouting at each other, the whole experience was very humbling. The fact that people deal with these every day is incredible.” 

“I had a great time, it was so chaotic when we were trying to climb the stairs into the restaurant and I couldn’t stop laughing when I was being led into my seat. It was all much more difficult than I would have imagined. The food was amazing and a fantastic experience, I would definitely do it again.”

Read this insightful review by one of our diners to find out the challenges they faced on the night.
