Hamish Henderson Lecture: Twelve Poems from the Story of My Youth (SOLD OUT)

Scottish Storytelling Centre
Netherbow Theatre
Carrying Stream Festival

by Janet Henderson

The title for this year’s annual lecture was inspired by Hamish Henderson’s poem Ballad of the Twelve Stations of My Youth. Here, selecting poems read to her by her father during her own youth, Janet Henderson revisits some defining moments from her childhood. She explores how Henderson’s intellect, personality and legacy have influenced her own life, notably his passion for viewing life through a poetic lens.

Part of the Carrying Stream Festival. With songs performed by Alison McMorland and Geordie McIntyre.

*This event is now Sold Out, but will be live streamed via the Centre’s Facebook page*
