News: Mermaid show to return to Skegness Aquarium – here’s what you need to know

Another Lincolnshire Highlights news story…

Visitors at Skegness Aquarium can now watch a mermaid swim among the fishes.

The unique show proved a hit with holidaymakers last summer at the attraction in Tower Esplanade, drawing in tourists from the county and beyond.

Now, aquarium bosses have revealed the mermaid will make a comeback – though the exact date of the return remains shrouded in mystery.

Officials have said the show will take place every Thursday but remained tight-lipped and say more details will be released in the coming weeks.

On the aquarium website, it says: “In folklore, a mermaid is an aquatic creature with the head and upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish.

“Mermaids are sometimes associated with perilous events such as floods, storms, shipwrecks, and drownings. In other folk traditions (or sometimes within the same tradition), they can be benevolent or beneficent, bestowing boons or falling in love with humans.

“Reports of mermaid sightings continue to the present day, including 21st-century examples from Israel, Zimbabwe, and Skegness Lincolnshire.”

News of the return has already sparked excitement in the community and among those looking to travel to the seaside town.

 

Tammy said: “The mermaid is amazing – we saw her a few weeks ago. It’s amazing for kids.”

Eleanor tagged a friend, saying: “Can we have a day trip to Skegness please?

If mermaids aren’t quite your speed, you can go on Wednesday instead, where visitors are treated to a pirate show featuring ‘the most fearsome pirate of the seven seas Long John Silver’.

 

This runs from July 17 until August 21 and the show is included in every general admission ticket.
