A group of 80 bubble artists have broken world records at the World Bubble Festival 2018.

The event was attended by Guinness Book of World Records officials at Galeri and Caernafon Castle, Gwynedd, on Sunday.

More than 1,300 people attended the three-day Bubble Daze conference which was held in conjunction with the record bid.

Events included bubble artist shows, a family "bubble rave" and science shows.

Square bubbles, bubble tornadoes, bubble puppets and exploding bubbles featured in the acts.

"We want to celebrate the art of creating bubbles not only for their scientific qualities, but also the entertaining and mesmerising qualities of bubble art performances," said Galeri artistic director Nici Beech.

They broke the world record for the largest number of people to create giant bubbles in one place and the greatest number of people to produce multiple bubbles.
