Introducing Myself

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My name is Ben Papworth. I work in Musical Theatre as a Musical Director and Pianist. Currently have a lot of free time, as I’m sure we all do in the current climate, so I decided to learn a new skill and I enjoy languages (already proficient at Spanish), therefore BSL seemed like a great option to broaden my language knowledge and become more accessible in my industry.

I live in Central London and have done for just under 3 years working in my field. I’ve worked with the likes of Divina De Campo, Rachel Tucker, Hannah Waddingham, Duncan James and more. I’d love to be able to meet other people in my industry who use BSL as a form of communication and start to bring theatre and the Deaf/deaf community together more.

    • Good morning, I’ve been with my partner for almost 2 years and their maternal family uses BSL. So far I’ve picked up the the basics, stuck to them and relied on them lip-reading but I’m trying to be more proactive and learn BSL kind of “meet them halfway.” I’d like to be able to engage in deeper conversations with them but am just learning to sign now. Any advice please?
    • Hi, my name’s Taz. I’m 25 and live in London. I’m just learning how to introduce myself in BSL now and love learning about the community also. How about you guys?
    • Hello! My name is Kathryn and I have far too many hobbies to list. I work in tourism and as a carer (and also sometimes at my local bookshop). I've had an interest in learning BSL for a long time but decided to commit to it as part of my Queen's Guide Award which is the highest award you can achieve in GirlGuiding, essentially the same as the King's Scout Award if you're involved in Scouting.
