Video: SoundLincs attempt bubble wrap world record

Bubble popping: Hundreds of people gathered in Lincoln to take part in SoundLincs bubble wrap record attempt.

Hundreds of people gathered at the Lincolnshire Showground to take part in music charity SoundLincs’ bubble wrap popping world record attempt.

The music charity from Lincoln made the unusual world record attempt on May 3 to celebrate its 15th anniversary.

Held at the Lincolnshire Showground in the Epic Centre, around 330 people gathered in order to attempt to pop as much bubble wrap as possible in two minutes.

Sadly in order to break the record, the group needed at least 530 people to attend, but that did not stop the participants involved having lots of fun popping the bubbles.

In addition to the world record attempt, the charity is also hosting a birthday event, called B15, where musicians and singers will perform a piece of music involving 15 different music genres based on one traditional Lincolnshire song.

The 1500 metres of bubble wrap was kindly donated by the inventors of the product, Sealed Air.

SoundLincs CEO Nikki-Kate Heyes MBE said: “B15 is a truly unique and exciting project which involves a brand new commissioned piece of music that will embrace the infinite possibilities of music from our distant past, present and into the future.”
