Firework Champions 2015 – pulling it all together

You’ll have seen the various stories we’ve put up here and a vast number of photos and videos on our Facebook page and Twitter feed but we thought it would be great to pull it all together into one place.

We took part last Saturday in the Firework Champions event at Newby Hall. One of five similar events taking place across the midlands and north of England this summer. We were competing against two other companies – Illusion Fireworks and Flashpoint Fireworks. Illusion just squeaked it ahead of us by a handful of votes so we were very pleased with the result. A win would have been better but that’s life. Just wait until the next time…

We have some amazing photos and videos.

A full video of the display can be seen here

There were other videos shot, which you can see here (which includes some nice drone-filmed views of the display) and here.  And for the really keen, here is Nick’s pre-display interview and the promotional video for the Newby Hall 2015 competition. Enjoy!

We’ve also got some amazing photos which can be seen below and here thanks to Cris Matthews at Pyro Productions.

Thanks to everyone for all their support, particularly the guys and girls at Firework Crazy, The Fireworkers and Firework Empire for working with us, and to Pendragon Fireworks for the loan of some kit.  Particular thanks to Mike Knox at Evolved Pyrotechnics for letting us showcase his new firing system and to Mat Lawrence at MLE Pyrotechnics for organising the event. It was a great day out. The weather held out for us and all the displays were awesome.

Cutting edge at Firework Champions 2015 – one week to go!

With one week to go, we are very pleased to reveal that we will be using a brand new fireworks product for our display for the Firework Champions on Saturday 25th July at Newby Hall.

It a new way of firing single shots and was created by Evolved Pyrotechnics. It was first seen at possible new product at the ISF International Symposium on Fireworks in 2013 and after lengthy development arrived on UK shores late this week.

Evolved has many befits over the traditional methods, and saving time and ease of use is just one aspect. It’s safe, reliable and consistent system means the will team spend less time setup, saving man-hours and ensuring seamless displays.  We are really excited!

Three weeks to Firework Champions and here are the numbers…

On 25 July we are taking part in the 2015 Firework Champions event at Newby Hall.   Excitement has been building – the show is designed, the fireworks chosen and prepped.   All we have to do now is wait…  Well, maybe not.   There is still a lot to do before now and then.

We’ve put together the infographic below – 10 minute show, more than 900 fireworks, over 3,600 aerial effects, and 120kg of explosive content sourced from six UK suppliers.   More than 3,700m of wires and cables involved and fireworks coming from China, Italy and the UK.   It is going to be great!  Hope to see you there.
