Mermaid Melusine and I love this gorgeous photograph by Andrew Childs Photography, of our appearance on the beach at the Folkestone Mermaid Festival on the 19th July! We had a fabulous time - first we took part in the mermaid parade along the seafront, which featured some great drumming (and highly talented kids with homemade rattles!). Next, we enjoyed lounging in a magical mermaid grotto on the beach, meeting lots of lovely mermaid fans, posing for photographs and talking about life under the sea. Our grotto was event decorated with beautiful fish and jellyfish, handmade by children at the local school
Then finally - just as a dramatic electric storm was drawing in from across the sea - we appeared onstage with our musical mermaid cabaret act, including one song written specially for the good people of Folkestone and their Little Mermaid in the harbour... It was a wonderful event, and hopefully we'll follow up with some more photographs shortly.
