We would just like to wish you all an absolutely fabulous New Year! It’s been a great year for Yorkshire Life Aquatic.
Our summer project ‘Splash’ our new dry land show saw us performing at all sorts of events including DNweekeND Festival in Doncaster, Yorkshire festival, Beacons Festival, Bathing Beauties Festival in Lincolnshire, Saltaire Festival and Lister Park Reflections Festival.
We also ran a community mermaids and Pirates Splash mob project with people from South Leeds which we performed as part of Leeds Waterfront Festival it was a lovely opportunity to work with young people in the community.
We have continued to work with Bramley Baths and we are now running weekly Mermaid exercise classes at the Baths which are proving rather popular. Our group Bramley Mermaids club even performed at the Bramley Baths summer gala and we are going to Manchester on Valentine’s day to perform at Withington Baths too.
As it’s now a bit too chilly to perform outside we have been branching into Cabaret by developing a new indoor performance which we were lucky enough to be asked to perform at the Hebden Bridge Trades Club, we also performed in the Gaza Fundraiser at Bradford Playhouse and at the new Pudsey venue Café Lux for Cabaret Heaven. We are very excited that we will be performing in London this year at the legendary cabaret night ‘Duckie’ at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern which are really looking forward too!
We have some big plans for 2015 including Bradford Festival, Kirkstall Festival and a special event at Bramley Baths (but we’ll keep that secret for now)
We would like to say a massive thank you to all of you who have supported us over the last two years it’s been an amazing time and we are looking forward to more ambitious events and projects over the next few years to come, so watch this space!
