Priory Live 2016….. was awesome!

Had a great night at Priory Live in Orpington last weekend.   The weather was great, the crew behaved themselves and some top quality music.  We closed out the festival with live fireworks to the closing act, Feral Ghost, splitting the display across their final two tracks.  You can see some of the set-up shots on our Facebook page.

Full video below – including drone footage showing just how high some of those candles and shells actually go!  You can also see a nifty piece of slomo footage from inside the display here.

Countdown to Priory Live 2016 – 13 August 2016

We are now in countdown mode to this year’s Priory Live music festival, taking place in Orpington on 13 August. Since the event started three years ago we have provided the closing fireworks finale for this great event and we have a superb display designed and prepped for everyone for this year!

Gates open at 12 noon and we fire the display at 9pm (ish)…..  And it is totally free of charge.  Look forward to seeing you there.  And below are some of the images from last year’s display set up and firing.

Round three of Wots On in West Wickham

On Saturday 9 April we took part for the third year running in the annual WOT’S ON IN WEST WICKHAM.

“WOT’S ON” is organised by the West Wickham Rotary Club and is designed to showcase and increase membership of the wide range of different activities available in the area. Participating groups include theatre performers, dance and sports clubs as well as other organisations such as the scuba diving club, the Scouts, wine circle, photography society and many others.

Chris and Mark manned the Knights of Fire stand and spent three hours talking to visitors about what we do and how the fireworks industry has changed, with a lot of visitors talking about “the gold old days” when fireworks were noisier (yes, really) and members of the public could still buy shells for their own displays.   Below are our team photos!

18th birthday fireworks in March!

It’s March.   Not the warmest of months.  Not the driest either!  But that never stopped us.  So we were out on a Thursday evening for an 18th birthday party fireworks spectacular just before the long Easter weekend.   And great fun it was too.   Firing site was tight so we had to pick the material very carefully and be creative in our approach.  Everyone enjoyed the show and a very happy birthday party for the client!

If you’d like fireworks for any of your celebrations then drop us a line – details on the Contact page and prices on the Prices page.

West Wickham Fireworks 2015 – finally finished the video!

So.  It took a little while to get done, but here we have it.  The video footage from the 2015 display at Langley Park School for Girls on behalf of the Rotary Club of West Wickham and the school’s PTA.  You can see more about the display here and here.

Some great footage from the camera at the front of the display as well as some drone footage interwoven in.  Many thanks to Steve Sangster for the drone shots – you can see more of his work on Twitter @SteveSangster.

Enjoy the video!
