Mermaid Tales 
Early Years National Marine Aquarium story sessions: Who wants to meet a mermaid? Well you can during this session, where Marina our resident Mermaid will read a short story to everybody tuned in – perfect timing before an afternoon nap, or as a gentle, relaxing start to the afternoon. Research has shown that encounters with marine environments (physical or virtual) have a powerful effect on our emotional state and general wellbeing. With the country in lockdown there has never been a more important time to ensure everyone has access to a weekly dose of Ocean.

Why not watch one a week as part of your daily story-time sessions?
