In order that she could fully access the performance, Sally Reynolds asked the organisers of a Little Mix concert, LHG Live, to provide a British Sign Language interpreter.

Under the Equality Act 2010, any organisation supplying a service to the public is under a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that a disabled person’s experience is as close as possible to that of someone without a disability.
