The Eastgate celebrates Luminate creative ageing festival by presenting four lunchtime entertainments offering intriguing high quality performances by musicians, story tellers and actors.   Each Bite Sized event combines the performance with the chance to enjoy a light, healthy lunch and social time in good company in the theatre.

Join Heather Yule, spellbinding storyteller and harper. Through story, riddles and rhymes, this is an event full of fun and entertainment!

Heather grew up surrounded by storytelling, literature, theatre and music. She started telling stories at house ceilidhs from a very young age and from when she was eight years old accompanied her mother, Dr Barbara McDermitt, researching folk narrative for her PhD This included visiting the Gaelic tradition bearer Nan MacKinnon on the island of Vatersay in the Outer Hebrides; the master storytellers from the Scottish Traveller tradition, such as Stanley Robertson and Betsy Whyte; and the Appalachian storyteller Ray Hicks in the USA.

At the age of eight Heather heard the clarsach (Scottish harp) for the very first time and was smitten.  Years later she gained a BMus in pedal harp performance and developed her own unique way of combining traditional storytelling with the music of the harp.
