ABOUT

Our mermaids & pirates at Book A Mermaid specialise in both aquatic and dry land entertainment and are available Nationally and Worldwide. Since coming ashore they have learned to interact with and entertain the Land-folk with their beguiling ways, enchanting siren songs and tales of their lives & adventures in the ocean! 

 

When you Book A Mermaid you can rest assured that we will provide professionally trained, highly skilled, all-round performers,  with years of experience under their belts who are completely dedicated to maintaining the utmost realism and keeping the magic alive at all costs! We can provide fully self contained installations or can be integrated into an existing set up.

Our mermaids & pirates are sure to be a huge hit with people of all ages and we are experts in knowing our audience and creating shows to best fit them! From family fun to corporate evenings, we can cover it all!

Our performers are truly passionate about what they do, this is more than just a job to them, it's living a dream and you can see their passion in their performance!

We take safety very seriously so we ensure that all of our performers are DBS certified and fully insured.  

The founder of Book A Mermaid, Lily-Rose, began her journey as a professional mermaid in early 2013, when there were only a very small handful of professional mermaids in the UK. Lily-Rose pioneered the way for many a new mermaid, providing advice and mentoring and by founding the UK's largest online mermaid community, the UK Merpod.

 She first started out as a solo venture before founding a larger company, The English Mermaids in 2015, going from strength to strength, appearing in various news and magazine articles and TV shows such as Notts TV, Timeout Magazine, The Argus and more! You can also see her on episode 5 of ITV's Give It A Year alongside Mermaids UK! She has also had the pleasure of working alongside some fantastic mermaid companies such as Mer-Made & NoTanx Apnea, Growfins Mermaid School, March Of The Mermaids and more! As both her and the company grew, she decided to rebrand, becoming Book A Mermaid in early 2018.

Lily-Rose began training in musical theatre at the young age of 7 years old, where she developed a strong love for the arts and entertaining people. Over the course of 21 years she has dedicated her life and time to honing her skills as a performer, singer and mermaid to ensure that she provides the very best experience for her audience as well as her clients.

The ocean has always been a huge passion for her as have mermaids, and this love is reflected in her business and her performing. With years of extensive research into mermaid folklore and mythology behind her combined with her skills in the performing arts, she is able to believably bring the wonder of the mermaid to life right in front of your very eyes, and she'll have you second guessing what you thought you knew about mermaids!
