Pupils from Dervaig Primary School on Mull were treated to a backstage meet and greet with Lionel McLion and Tamoru who performed their show Eaten at Mull Theatre.

One of the stars of the show, Lionel McLion, said: ‘I had never seen the sea before I moved to Scotland to star in Eaten – a very funny show about food and poop. I was born and bred in the Serengeti. Did you know it’s in the middle of the world’s second biggest continent? The nearest sea is 1,000km away!

‘I was so excited to come to the Isle of Mull because, well, it’s famous for seafood! I had crabs, langoustines, smoked salmon and mussels. Everything was so yum! I had a bit too much, so I had to go for a wee walk before the show.

‘Tobermory is so pretty! Houses are painted in lovely bright colours here! I will paint the outside of my flat in lion yellow when I get home!

‘Then we had a show! All kinds of seafood in my stomach gave me lots of energy to roar gloriously! The Mull Theatre was totally packed with lots and lots of lovely pupils from four local schools! After the show, we took photos together! It was great fun!’
