Visitor Information

QAC would like to welcome you to Sight Village Birmingham.

Every year, a large number of visitors come to our Sight Village exhibitions to find out more about the latest technology, equipment and support services available to people who are blind or partially-sighted. If you or a family member have a visual impairment it could be of great help to visit the show. We also welcome a wide range of professionals that support people with visual impairments and businesses looking to better meet the needs of their employees and customers.

We are delighted to confirm that My Guide volunteers will be available at New Street station (Grand Central) to assist with your onward travel to New Bingley Hall.  They will be wearing Guide Dog T-shirts and will be situated on the ground floor near to Passenger Assistance/Customer Reception (signposted) at the following times: 8.45-11.30am on both mornings and in the afternoon 3.30-5.30pm on 18th, and 2.00- 4.00pm on 19th


Doors open at 9.30am both days and close at 5pm on the 18th and 3.30pm on the 19th July.

Entry is free to all QAC Sight Village events.

We look forward to seeing you all at Sight Village Birmingham 2017
