Lit­tle bit of fun at the Mer­maid

Bray People - - Bray People -

SEA­SONAL and fes­tive cheer filled the air at the Mer­maid The­atre last week­end as they held two spe­cial Christ­mas events.

The an­nual dress­ing of the tree took place fol­lowed by the open­ing of this year’s sea­sonal ex­hi­bi­tion.

Kids from the lo­cal area were in­vited to the Mer­maid The­atre to help with the dress­ing the tree.

Over the past few weeks many of the kids in Bray and the sur­round­ing ar­eas have been cre­at­ing and mak­ing their very own unique Christ­mas tree dec­o­ra­tions.

On Satur­day the kids brought their home­made dec­o­ra­tions and placed them in pride of place on the Mer­maid The­atre Christ­mas Tree.

A great af­ter­noon was had by all as par­ents en­joyed some fes­tive treats of mulled wine and mince pies.

Fol­low­ing the dress­ing of the tree the ‘A Christ­mas Gift’ ex­hi­bi­tion opened to a fan­tas­tic re­sponse.

The ex­hi­bi­tion in­cludes work from an abun­dance of fab­u­lous lo­cal and na­tional artists and crafts­peo­ple.

Over the next few weeks fea­tured work from Carmel Ben­son, Stephen Blayds, Jen­nifer Cun­ning­ham, Damien Flood, Imelda Healy, Joanna Kid­ney, Stephen Lawler, Kate MacDon­agh, Kate Min­nock, Philippa Suther­land, Shut­tle Knit and Christien Van Bus­sel, will be on view.

‘A Christ­mas Gift’ is an ideal chance to view some great art and craft and per­haps pur­chase a gift with a dif­fer­ence this Christ­mas.

Knitwear from shut­tleknit is on dis­play un­til De­cem­ber 21 and a se­lec­tion of print, paint­ing and sketches will re­main on dis­play un­til Satur­day Jan­uary 3.
