"Fabulous! Thank you for bringing pure magic to our festival! An absolute hit and a must for any festival or event in the country!"

Brisbane Festival, QLD


"Brilliantly Phenomenal - our audiences were in awe!"

The Red Earth Arts Festival, WA



Welcome to The Bubble Canteen, a magical installation where the air sparkles with 12,000 bubbles each minute; a world of wonder and delight, capturing and connecting directly to the hearts of your audience.

Crafted by the imaginative hands of Beryl, Annie, and Helga—three charming golden spinster sisters from Dublin—The Bubble Canteen is more than just an attraction; it's a vibrant celebration of creativity and joy. These spirited sisters infuse every bubble with whimsy and warmth, inviting all who visit to connect with the installation and each other. Designed with inclusivity at its core, The Bubble Canteen offers an entirely visual experience free from language barriers. Here, every shimmering bubble tells a story, and every visitor can share in the magic regardless of age or background. It's a place where the simple joy of a floating bubble can evoke profound feelings of happiness, wonder, and awe.

Celebrated as "pure magic" at its debut for Brisbane Festival 2023 and set to dazzle at upcoming events like The Mackay Festival of Arts, Rockhampton River Festival, and Carins Festival, The Bubble Canteen is not just an exhibit—it is an experience that reaches out, and invites you to return time and again to its captivating embrace.


"The Bubble Canteen was a festival highlight that audiences flocked to through-out the weekend - dolling up generous servings of fun of joy amid 12,000 bubbles per minute!"

The 2024 Fremantle International Street Arts Festival , WA


The Bubble Installation sets the stage for a magical atmosphere at any festival or event hub. As attendees enter the designated area, they are transported into a world of wonder. The delicate beauty of bubbles combined with the robustness and nimbleness of talented performers creates an enchanting ambiance that immerses the audience in joy and excitement. 



One of the critical aspects of the Bubble Installation is its ability to engage the audience on multiple levels. Children and adults are drawn to thousands of bubbles floating and dancing through the air. The installation brings out the inner child in everyone, evoking a sense of nostalgia and wonder. The building becomes a focal point for families, friends, and individuals to gather, interact, and enjoy a shared experience. 



The Bubble Installation offers a breathtaking visual experience that never fails to delight. With over 12,000 bubbles coming alive every minute, the air is filled with a mesmerizing display of shapes, sizes, and colors. From small, shimmering bubbles to larger ones filled with smoke, reflecting vibrant hues, the visual appeal of the installation captivates the eyes and sparks the imagination. 



Besides the visual spectacle, the Bubble Installation encourages interactivity, making it an ideal centerpiece for festival or event hubs. Attendees can actively engage with the installation; this adds an element of hands-on fun, allowing participants to feel more connected to the installation and the overall event. 



The delicate and ephemeral nature of bubbles, combined with the joyous atmosphere they create, instills a sense of happiness, wonder, and awe in attendees. This emotional response lingers long after the event, leaving individuals with fond memories and a desire to relive the experience.
