RNIB is 2017 Health Charity of the Year

RNIB calls on Glastonbury Festival goers to take on #EyeTestKaraoke


As health charity partner for 2017, the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) will be bringing a different take on the traditional eye test to Worthy Farm.

RNIB will be encouraging the 200,000 festivalgoers to look after their sight and raise awareness of the importance of eye tests, by singing their hearts out in their Eye Test Karaoke themed tent. You will have the opportunity to sing along to hits by some of this year’s headliners whilst putting your sight to the test.

The lyrics, set out in the form of an eye test chart, will get smaller and smaller, giving a real life experience of trying to read the karaoke screens with a sight condition – all highlighting just how important it is to have regular eye tests.

RNIB staff will be on hand to provide information and handy tips about how you can keep your eyes healthy and protect your sight.
