Deaf Culture Day

The first special school of its kind in Sussex for the Deaf & Dumb was sited in Eastern Road, Brighton on the site now occupied by Danny Sheldon House. It operated here from 1848 to 1941.


As part of the Deaf Culture Day on Saturday 15th May a Blue Plaque commemorating this fact will be unveiled on Danny Sheldon House at 11am. The unveiling will be performed by 2 old pupils  who both left the school before 1939.

  2. I believe it was a one-off event.
