Deafness Research UK provides free hearing screening to reinforce the importance of looking after your hearing and encourage regular checks to ensure any problems are identified and dealt with early.

The Bionic Ear Show visits schools, colleges and adult community groups warning people of the dangers to their hearing from loud noise.

Its visit to Northern Ireland comes at a time when patterns of hearing loss that were once due to industrial deafness are now being seen again thanks to the misuse of MP3 players.

The show is presented by former teacher Tobin May who said he was really looking forward to bringing it to Northern Ireland.

Anyone who would like the roadshow to visit their school, community group or event free of charge should contact Laura Turner at Deafness Research UK on 020 7164 2294 or email [email protected]
