In 2012, RNIB's partnership with the Handel House Museum was the subject of a short film, created by Mediatrust as part of their Untold Stories series. The film describes how staff at the Handel House have brought the museum alive through touch tours and music workshops for blind and partially sighted musicians of all ages. RNIB would like to thank the Handel House Museum and Mediatrust for the opportunity to tell this story. You can watch the video below.
