Under the ABC

Southside Fringe Festival: Join Merman Tom at The Savings Bank for an afternoon of storytelling and sing a long at this cabaret just for kids!

Under the ABC

About Under the ABC

The "not so little merman" will be reading empowering and diverse stories for kids as well as singing some of his favourite songs from Disney that will get your toes tapping and singing a long in no time. This will be a show for kids aged 10 and under to bring along their parents/guardians for an afternoon of fun and music with Scotland's only live singing and storytelling merman. Our doors will open at 1pm and showtime kicks off at 1.30pm and lasts approx 45 mins. After that there will be time to get your "shellphones" out for a mertastic "shellfie" with Merman Tom.

This is also a safe space for kids and adults to express themselves and be as creative as they want, so feel free to dress up as little or as much as you want. We suggest prince, princesses, mermaids and mermen, superheroes or maybe your favourite TV character and Tom especially likes anything shiny and glittery too.

Tickets are priced the same for adults and children

£6 admits 1 person

£12 admits 2 people

£20 admits 4 people

All children must be supervised by at least 1 adult at all times.
Free Squash will be available to all the little merfolk. This show is part of The Southside Fringe 2019.

Tickets available at www.designmynight.com

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Under the ABC are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
