It is with deep regret that Ballet Ireland, together with Mermaid Arts Centre, have made the difficult decision to cancel the Nutcracker Sweeties performances due to the challenges presented by the current government restrictions and in the interest of public health.
All affected bookers haven been contacted. We really appreciate your understanding and patience, and we look forward to welcoming Ballet Ireland back to Mermaid in 2022.
