THERE'S MORE TO MERMAIDS THAN YOU MIGHT THINK...


The Centre for Fortean Zoology is the largest mystery animal research group in the world. We are involved in research, education, and conservation work across the globe. As part of our ongoing committment to education, we are launching an exciting new outreach project. The Mermaid Theatre is a travelling roadshow for primary schools, initially in the westcountry.

Using an innovative multimedia mix of theatre, drama workshops, music, lecture, film and son et lumiere the Mermaid Theatre will visit primary schools across the region, and endeavour to introduce a new generation of children to their folkloric heritage, and the lessons that they can learn from it..

It is hoped that this project, which is run by the CFZ in conjunction with GnomeDuck productions, one of the most talented and innovative production companies in the region, will be a free service, and that it will also provide a springboard for long term unemployed and disabled people to work on what looks set to become a major community project.
