Virtual Activity Sessions

Virtual Activity is Vista’s programme of online talks and activities for people with sight loss.


Led by expert tutors our sessions will help you to meet new people and learn new skills – or practice some old ones. From cooking to singing there is something to suit everyone. 

The sessions take place on Zoom, a platform to virtually meet others, either by video or audio-only. Once you have signed up to a session you’ll be sent an email with a link. You don’t need a Zoom account, you can just click the link on the day and it will open in your browser. 

Our full programme of activities will be listed on our events page and you can also book your place via the links below.

Upcoming events

Places on all courses are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis so please book early so we can send you an activity pack.
