Yorkshire Aquatic will be making their splashy finale to a Summer of dry-land synchronised swimming and mermaid lessons at Bramley Baths on Sunday 29th  September, 12.30-4.30pm. They will give two short performances in the pool at 1pm and 4pm during an afternoon of fun and games for all ages. See the Million Dollar Mermaids latest homage to the golden age of Hollywood, a vintage hat-tip to movie icon Esther Williams.

Featuring six performers from around Yorkshire, Million Dollar Mermaids is a short performance being developed at Bramley Baths during an afternoon of family activities, swimming and two art installations including Mermaid Photography by Lizzie Coombes and sound recordings with members of Bramley Elderly Action remembering swimming.


The performance combines vintage synchronised swimming techniques with physical theatre, developed by choreographer Zoe Parker.
