Get up and Tie your Fingers Eyemouth tells the story of how the people of Eyemouth recovered following the 1881 Fishing Disaster. The production uses song, storytelling, and dance to illustrate the courage and resilience of communities in the face of unimaginable tragedy and the hope that follows. It is a story which still resonates today, in Eyemouth and in any community recovering from loss.

Around fifty members of the community of all ages, from across Eyemouth and the surrounds, have worked together to create, produce and perform this unique production. It was first performed with this community cast in June 2016.
We are delighted to bring the Eyemouth story told by voices from Eyemouth and the surrounds to Edinburgh.
Performance at Tradfest, Netherbow Theatre, Scottish Storytelling Centre, Edinburgh, 4th April 2017.
