Disability Awareness Day (DAD), is Europe’s largest ‘not for profit’ voluntary-led disability exhibition, and is held annually in a huge tented village within the grounds of Walton Hall Gardens. You will find over 250 exhibitors, equipment suppliers, transport, holidays, leisure, employment, support groups and services. PLUS a Sports Zone including Scuba diving, an Arts Marqee and family entertainment. The show opens at 10am and finishes at 5pm.
The Aims of DAD are –
To highlight what statutory, private or voluntary services are available to enable disabled people to be as independent as is possible.
To promote equipment and aides that could maintain or improve independence, not just what is offered by statutory service providers, we want everyone to see the best and/or latest designs
To provide an opportunity to show what disabled people can do, in the field of Sport, Arts and Entertainment
As well as fulfilling all these aims every year the show also gives everyone who comes a really good day out filled with interest, fun and entertainment!
