After a bit of blood, sweat and tears – and software updates – we have the video from the display at Club Langley for the West Wickham Rotary Club. A great show featuring tracks by Muse, Ellie King, Adele, David Bowie, and finishing with Prince’s “Purple Rain”. There was great feedback from the crowd, they really loved it with one person saying: “It was a fantastic display and so well choreographed to the music.” Enjoy.
On 12 November we were out for St David’s College – their 90th anniversary year and a school we have a very long relationship with – including a lot of the crew attending the school themselves when they were not much taller than a grasshopper. Here are the photos courtesy of Kevin Sealy. It was a bit of a damp and smokey night – there was no wind – but the show more than up to its usual “shock and awesome” heritage.
…. it was decidedly chilly out there yesterday while setting up and getting ready to go for the 22nd West Wickham Rotary Club annual fireworks display. But the sun came out (briefly) and unlike previous years it DID NOT RAIN! Hooray. Had a fantastic and hugely appreciative crowd for the show which comprised tracks from Muze, Ellie King, Adele, David Bowie, and Prince. Comments we overheard included: “very creative”, “great show”, and “amazing”. Some photos below courtesy of Kevin Sealy. Video to follow and we are at St David’s College this coming Saturday.
Had a great night last night doing a display for The Friends of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School down in Rottingdean. Everyone had a fun evening and it was a new experience for us, firing from the grounds of a convent. There were some great firework-themed goodies on sale as well. Some photos from the set up (and the goodies) below and we are hoping someone took some shots of the display….. Out at Club Langley tomorrow for the West Wickham Rotary Club. Raining today but fingers and toes crossed for the 5th!
So, the shows are nearly designed and fully prepped for the November fireworks season and we are really looking forward to seeing everyone for a series of spectacular firework displays.
We start on 3 November at The Friends of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School down in Rottingdean followed on 5 November by West Wickham Rotary Club at Club Langley in West Wickham and finishing off with St David’s College, also in West Wickham, on 12 November. We are also out and about helping on various other displays as well so may see you there.
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.
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.
