Counting down to November!

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.

Two weeks to our first November show! St David’s College on 1 November 2015

So… just gearing up for the November season.   Our first show is out at St David’s College in West Wickham on Sunday 1 November.    This is a long-standing private display for the school’s PTA and one with special significance for us as the Knights of Fire team are either are Old Davidians or have had children at the school.

In different ways we have had a link to the school for the last 50 years and 40 years helping with or organising their annual fireworks display.  

The evening features two firework displays set to music, enjoy the barbecue and warm yourself up with some mulled wine.
Gates open at 5.30pm with the first fireworks display at 6.30pm.   Then there is a short break (while you refuel on food and drinks) followed by the second display.   Bonfire is lit around around 7:45pm.
Entrance on the night £5.50 per child and £7.00 per adult.   There are limited tickets available.

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

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.

We do get asked what does the show look like from the perspective of the firer compared to that of the audience.   At this year’s St David’s College display we decided to let everyone find out.   Below is a combination of footage from the display filmed on the headcam of one of the firers and in the bottom right hand corner the view from the audience.   Although this is one probably for the more hardcore pyrotechnics fans – it is a bit dark throughout – we hope you enjoy it.
