Fantastic evening at West Wickham’s Langley Park School for Girls

After what can only be described as rubbish weather all morning and early afternoon we have a fantastic evening yesterday at West Wickham and Beckenham’s Langley Park School for Girls where we put our show for the Rotary Club of West Wickham and LPGS PSA.  The skies cleared, the crowd turnout was huge and the show ran smoothly.  We even managed to get the vehicles off the field this time without any bother.   Video to follow.

Cracking nights in Caterham and at St David’s over the weekend

We had two great nights over the weekend – 2 & 3 November.  First off was the display on behalf of the Caterham Round Table at Caterham Dene on Saturday evening.  Very positive post-show comments from spectators gathered round the bonfire.  On the Sunday we returned to St David’s College in West Wickham for their annual display which drew the usual great reception from the crowd.  Photos and videos to follow when we’ve had time to draw breath.  Many thanks to all the crew.

New cake boxes for the new season

Now, a cake box for you and a cake box for us are probably two different things.  Just made for the new season are the cake boxes below.  Instead of holding creamy or currant-filled delights, these boxes hold fireworks safely and securely in position and are very good for using on hard surfaces where staking is impractical or impossible.   Car parks for example.

These are homemade by Nick’s fair hands and we think they look fantastic.

Malta adventure revisited…

Back in April, Nick went to the Malta International Firework Festival.  He went at the invitation of PyroSure, the electronic firing system for fireworks.    Mike Knox at PyroSure has written up their adventure for Fireworks magazine and you can read all about it below:

Fireworks at St David’s College – November 2013

West Wickham’s St David’s College PTA has appointed the Knights of Fire to handle their 2013 fireworks display on Sunday 3 November.   The annual fireworks display is a very long-standing tradition of the school and it is where the Knights started their fireworks careers.  It is probably the largest private display in the area and we are delighted to be doing it this year.
