“When it comes to bubbles, Sam – or Samsam Bubbleman as he prefers to be called – is one of the most respected bubbleologists in the world, and this December for the first time in 30 years, he brings his amazing Giant Bubble Show to St Peter’s Pavilion as part of The Brighton Christmas Festival.

“What Samsam can’t do with bubbles can’t be done! He has Guinness records for the world’s biggest bubble; the world’s biggest frozen bubble; the most number of people inside a giant bubble (50); and nine other bubble-related Guinness records.

“Dubbed The Willy Wonka of bubbles by Chris Evans (BBC), Samsam has travelled the globe performing at festivals and events, making bubbles for film and television, at corporate and private and science events and touring his amazing bubble show.”

Samsam said: “Going on Blue Peter the first time was the scariest. My special bubble brew didn’t like all the hot TV lights but I had to go out and create huge bubbles on live TV! It really wasn’t good for my surface tension!”
