RESIDENTS are invited to a meet and greet with the puppets from The Singing Mermaid in Festival Place.

Julia Donaldson’s The Singing Mermaid will be at The Haymarket on April 12 and 13, in time for the Easter break.

The Singing Mermaid is tempted away to join a travelling circus, with the promise of a life of excitement (and her own swimming pool). The audience will no doubt love her singing, but will soon find out she's been tricked by the dastardly circus master. Will she ever escape? And who will help her along the way?
