Combining fantasy with reality, Mermaid Tales was an aquatic adventure based on memories borrowed from Bramley swimmers, translated into a walking, talking, dancing performance and exhibition that finished with a finale routine in the pool.

Visitors on Saturday were able to roam the building to reveal the compelling human stories at its heart, told through immersive, interactive multimedia art and performance.

The event threw a new light on the hidden and public spaces in this 110-year-old building.

It is the culmination event of The Bramley Memory Aquarium project, sharing a collection of stories about the generations of people who have enjoyed the Baths over the years.

1. Well done all!

6. Award for arts in pools …

7. We met at the dance hall …
