In episode three in a series of mini-documentaries featuring young people who credit the Eastgate as having had a major influence on their lives, Tim Wilcock speaks with sisters Ruth and Anna Tweedy, who together have a long history of involvement at the theatre through ushering, dance and the performing arts (with Anna first appearing on stage aged just seven).

As Tim remarks in his background notes on the series (see full details on YouTube link): “Listen to their opinions on the impact being a part of the Eastgate family has had on their lives, particularly in terms of the skills and confidence it has given to each of them. It’s a ringing endorsement of the role such institutions have to play in society, delivering economic as well as entertainment and education benefits.”
