In January 2017, RSBC merged with the Royal London Society for Blind People (RLSB). Although we are now called RSBC, there may be some references to RLSB in the following article.

Dorton students got a special visit in the 1950s from singing duo The Tanner Sisters.

They were a popular act in that decade, making hundreds of TV and radio appearances and even performing alongside Buddy Holly in 1958.

Stella Tanner and Frances Tanner visited Dorton where they met the students and got a tour of the grounds. The made time to get plenty of candid shots with the kids, who are seen laughing along with the celebrities.
