March 2010 saw the arrival of Teatro Kismet’s production of The Mermaid Princess in six Bournemouth and Poole primary and middle schools.

After finding inspiration whilst watching the play at Lighthouse, the students participated in workshops related to the story in local libraries, with professional artists and illustrators in school and had map work sessions with Dorset History Centre.


The creative writing and artwork that was created throughout the project took centre stage displayed at the Lighthouse from July to September 2010.
