Dear Friends,
Just a quick message to wish you a fantasic Christmas and a splashing new year from all at Yorkshire Life Aquatic!

It has been an amazing year for us with residencies at Barnsley Civic and the West Yorkshire Playhouse.

We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported our work over the last year and we are really looking forward to what 2014 has in store for the mermaids.

If you have not yet been able to see our shows the performances at Barnsley & Bramley will be available to watch online in the new year along with our brand new website!

Also if you are feeling particually energetic on New Years day at Bramley Baths is the Big Dip from 12-2pm details on the Bramley Website We will be going along for a swim so feel free to come and have a chat!

Hope you all have a fabulous Christmas and new year. You will be seeing lots more of the Mermaids in 2014. Please feel free to drop us a line if you want to find out more.

Best wishes & splashes!

Summer Sublets

Its a very busy week for the mermaids next week, we are starting our residency at The West Yorkshire Playhouse as part of their Summer Sublets new work programme. We will be starting our weeklong residency on 15th July and will be there for the full week working on our ‘Million Dollar Mermaid’ project. This is a great opportunity for us to develop the project before we hit Beacon’s festival and The Civic, Barnsley in August.

We are also managing to fit in an underwater photo shoot at Bramley Baths with the amazing Lizzie Coombes! So watch this space for pics for the shoot and our Playhouse week. Exciting times at mermaid HQ!
