The go-to people to create spectacles like this

Posted on September 5, 2021

We were delighted to be invited back to Warwick Castle this summer to be part of their spectacular Sundown series. Following the success of their Dragonslayer shows in 2019 Warwick went all musical this time with live bands, a dj set and an eye-popping finale.

The ramparts and 1ooft high landmark tower erupted in colourful starbursts to bring the curtain down on a fantastic show. And it didn’t rain once!

Putting on a display like this draws on all the experience and expertise garnered from our 35 years in fireworks. There could be no loud bangs, no debris and not much time to set up. The brief was to get on site at 5pm and be ready to fire by 10pm.

By the end of the series we must have had the fittest team in fireworks. Getting to the top of Guy’s Tower involved carrying 100kg of kit and equipment up 500 steps of a very narrow spiral staircase. By the time they’d finished our team resembled cork-screws!
