Lucy and Zoe from Yorkshire Life Aquatic were in Ripon on Monday to work with two eager groups of potential Splashmobbers.
There were smiles all round as the Mermaids shared some moves and gave a sneak peak of the The Million Dollar Mermaids show which they will bring to Ripon as part of the Festival.
Thanks to our Splashmob champions at Upstage Academy, Happy Dance and Ripon Zumba who are helping to make it happen.
A few more rehearsals are planned to help perfect the surprise – we’ll keep in touch with you all.
The silliness continued when the Mermaids met with a group of Festival sponsors to celebrate their involvement and showcase one of our Festival Zones – Ripon Canal Basin.
Thanks to everyone who put in a guest appearance from Wolseley, Ripon BID, MKM and Elstob and Elstob, fully entering into the Festival spirit.
Even members of the Festival Team got into the watery vibe – seen here modelling re-cycled swim caps from local Ripon business friends Cool Bathing.
The Million Dollar Mermaids will be performing at the Canal Basin, Ripon Spa Gardens and the Market Place throughout the day on Saturday 25 June.
