What do you get when you mix a faerie godmother, a mermaid and a pixie prince?

Faeries, Mermaids and Pixies - an Unfairy Tale of course.

You may have heard the tale of these characters before but not like this. These stories are told upside down as stereotypes are broken to find true magic that everyone is not what they seem, they are actually so much more.

To make this experience even more magical you can even meet a mermaid after the show.

The mermaids are going to visit Scarborough beach at the Sunset Veranda and would love to share stories while also hearing about the human world.

You'll also be able to take a photo with a real life mermaid, tell her your wishes and take home a special treasure.

Where: Big Top at Sunset Veranda

When: 18th and 30th of Jan, both shows are at 10am

Price: $12.50
