Do not underestimate the pure, transformative JOY of being inside a bubble. My sulky teen was so happy all day!!!

Could have done without the story element to be honest and just have a show about bubbles. Nice that they allowed all the children the opportunity to be put in a giant bubble at the end

We took our 2 year old Daughter to Double Bubble Trouble and she absolutely loved it. The show is engaging and fun with Poppy teaching Bertie (and us!) how to do lots of cool things with bubbles. Really interactive with the kids which they loved and we even got to go in a bubble at the end. Fab show and a must see for any wee Fringees

Very enjoyable for kids

This show was exactly what we were looking for to kick start our fringe. My son (5) said it was the best show he had seen during our wee trip to the Fringe. And to be honest us adults had a great time as well was interesting to see the tricks and ideas of entertaining Poppy bubbles was a delight especially when I my husband (another child of the household) wanted to go in to a bubble. Was very well put together show with the Bert bubbles learning all he needed to know to become a bubble man. Plenty for the kids to enjoy and were made to feel comfortable straight away. My daughter (who is pretty much a teenager 12 going on 16) really enjoyed it and loved the chance to be put in a bubble during the show! Great family fun. Thank you for blasting out fringe off to the best start!
