Watch out Birmingham, here we come!

The Ouch! team are heading out and about once more. This time it's to Naidex, an annual disability exhibition, taking place at the NEC in Birmingham between the 20th and 22nd of April. If you are planning to attend, we can't wait to meet you for a chat. You'd never know, visit our little corner, stand F21, and you may even get your hands on some new Ouch! branded goodies.

At 11 AM. Each morning, Ouch! will occupy one of the seminar spaces, the lifestyle and demo zone, for 30 minutes. On Tuesday, website regulars Liz Carr, Simon Minty and Rob Crossan will be discussing the ups and downs of travelling with a disability. They don't just want to talk about their experiences though. They'll be asking you, the audience, for your questions and personal anecdotes.

On Wednesday, comedian Gareth Berliner will be seeing the funny side of Crohn's disease, short gut syndrome and depression. Some of the team recently went to see Gareth live and were very impressed. We hope you will be too.

On Thursday the 22nd of April, Ouch! presents deaf comedian Steve Day. He lost a lot of his hearing when he was 18, which obviously changed his perspective on the world a bit. He describes himself as the UK's only deaf comedian. He says, "if there are others, I haven't heard".

We absolutely love to meet Ouch! readers, so if you do plan to make the trip to Naidex, visit us at stand F21!
