St David’s College PTA is a long-standing client and although their display and bonfire is private, it still draws a great crowd from the school and is arguably the biggest primary school display in the local fireworks calendar. The … Continue reading →
As bonfire night approaches, better to be safe than sorry. Nobody wants to get hurt when they are out enjoying themselves, whether in their garden or elsewhere. Fireworks can be beautiful but they are not without their own risks and understanding how they work can prevent accidents.
Nick has given a number of talks to school children about what to watch our for and this week spoke about firework safety to the 10th Penge & Beckenham Cubs. He covered the Firework Code, sparkler safety and appropriate clothing – including showing them some of the gear we wear when firing. Nick also showed them what sort of fireworks are used on displays so that if they ever see something elsewhere they know to tell an adult and not touch it themselves.
Everyone who took part received a certificate and according to the Cubs’ Leaders, “it was great to have someone with your expertise to instruct the children and make them realise how dangerous fireworks can be if not used correctly.”

Progress is underway for a wedding show we are doing next weekend in Bromley. To mark the magical occasion, the bride and groom are celebrating with a number of heart-shaped shells. So here are some of them:
Knights of Fire have been appointed to provide the fireworks finale for Priory Live 2014. Priory Live is a new free one day festival in Orpington sponsored by Orpington 1st and McDonalds Orpington and has been established to provide a platform for good quality bands and singer songwriters to perform in a stunning setting located only 30 mins from Central London.
