Alan D Murray MBE is a British Sign Language (BSL) user and deaf trainer and consultant. He has a deep, lifelong interest in arts, culture, history, heritage and science. This interest, coupled with his strong belief that the arts should be accessible for all, is what fuels his passion for delivering culturally rich guided tours and talks in BSL, breaking down barriers and opening up the arts to the deaf BSL-using community across London.
