Mermaid Meet & Greets
We have some special guests in the family area this year! Come along to the family area at 1:30pm or 3pm to give your child the chance to meet and talk to a real mermaid! Parents & guardians are welcome to take photos of their own children with the mermaids.
Our mermaids are:
Lily-Rose the English Mermaid has been a mermaid for three years. A skilled aquatic performer as well as a beautiful land mer, she’s performed in many places, from Bristol Aquarium to Three Wishes Faery Festival, Folkestone Mermaid Festival to Deep Sea World and at many other events and locations.
Keen to bring magic into people’s lives, Lily Rose is always a hit with kids and adults alike. At Pagan Pride UK she’ll visit our Family Area with her fellow mermaids to do sing-a-long and talk with any children who’d like to meet a mermaid, and then she’ll appear at the Arts Tent to treat everyone to her beautiful singing.
You can find out more about her at The English Mermaids page.
Serena is one of the Midland Mermaids, and copes with her landlocked state by swimming regularly at local pools, where her wonderful tail often amazes and delights other swimmers.
A skilled performer both on land and in the water, she's also a part-time Disney Princess. She's wonderful with children and will happily answer any questions they have about the life of a mermaid.
Trained as an actress, she's been in various films, performed at children's parties and of course, works as a professional mermaid. Should your local seaside require a translator, she's also known for her skills in speaking Dolphin!
When she's not flipping her fin, Serina teaches circus skills and dance classes, models, and works with animals.
One of The English Mermaids, Aura Belle is a professional mermaid who has appeared at events like the Three Wishes Faery Festival, children's parties, opening events and at Bristol Aquarium. She loves swimming with her mersisters, and regularly appears with her friend Lily-Rose the English Mermaid..
Please note that children must be supervised by a parent or guardian at all times.
