2023

On 18th January 2023, Able2UK launched the #StopTheShadows project. Our most ambitious project to date, focused on highlighting and preventing the loneliness experienced by many people with disabilities.

A launch event at the Hard Rock Cafe, London with many special guests and a new website also happened on this day. Quite an epic one!

2021

On 28 September 2021 ABLE2UK staged its first ever accessible area at a film premiere. We did it in style with a pen at the World Premiere of NO TIME TO DIE at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

The initiative sees a specialised area on the red carpet specifically for people with disabilities who register through the ABLE2UK website.

As well as the Bond premiere we have also had our areas at the premieres for DOWNTON ABBEY: A NEW ERA and TICKET TO PARADISE where A-list stars such as DANIEL CRAIG, HUGH BONNEVILLE and GEORGE CLOONEY meeting our lucky winners who are also invited to watch the screening.

The Accessible Concert

2016

We headed to Glasgow in January 2016 for our accessible concert which saw the O2 Academy transformed into a fully accessible venue with sign interpreters, a temporary build viewing platform, braille signage around the building and water bowls for accessible dogs.

Alongside a message from SIR ELTON JOHN the night included videos from MARK WAHLBERG, CHRIS MOYLES, CHRIS MARTIN and ANNIE MAC.

The show itself was headlined by HOZIER with support from KODALINE and PRIDES hosted by GAIL PORTER.

We even made the national news and coverage across the BBC.
