Royal Academy of Arts need hearing aid users to test new facilities

The Royal Academy of Arts in London is inviting hearing aid users to get in touch who can help them to test its new theatre.

It recently opened the Benjamin West Lecture Theatre and is testing its new assistive listening systems to ensure its talks, films and other spoken word events are accessible for all.

They are looking for hearing aid users to attend upcoming events in the lecture theatre and give honest feedback about the quality of their experiences. The events will be free to attend and guests can receive a contribution towards travel costs.

If you are willing to attend one or two forthcoming events, please get in touch with Molly Bretton, Access and Communities Manager at the Royal Academy of Arts by emailing
