Gary Pearlman said about the event, “Bubbles are not something just for children. The craft of creating them and then experience the thrill of seeing people of all ages enjoying them, being mesmerised by their shapes and bright sparkling colours gives me a great satisfaction as an artist.
“Coming to Wales to share the wonder, magic and the elegant beauty of bubbles is a privilege for myself and my fellow artists.”
