May 8th, 1945

Victory in Europe (VE Day) was officially declared, symbolising the end to Hitler’s war. This day should forever be celebrated. Even more so this year as its the 75th anniversary!
On 8th May 2020 it will have been 75 years since the guns were silenced at the end of the war in Europe. To commemorate, the May bank holiday has been moved to coincide with this significant date, therefore giving the people of Britain a long weekend to reflect, rejoice and remember those who fought for our freedom.

Why not celebrate in style with a glorious fireworks display. Fill the nights sky with colourful bursts and loud bangs to acknowledge this victorious day and honour all those who served for us.
Be heard. Be seen. After all, this really is something to celebrate.

Celebrations in 1945

Back in 1945, people swarmed the streets of England marking the occasion with street parties, dancing, singing and more. Furthermore, the efforts of all where praised by Winston Churchill through a heart-warming speech and even members of the Royal Family ventured out to join in on the festivities.

They really did go all out and this is our chance to, once again, do the same.

And what better way to do so than to add some colourful, ferocious fireworks to the mix. If you have 25m or more worth of space, then why not splash out on some multishot fireworks alongside some epic rockets to create a sky filling extravaganza. Or maybe you’re looking for a more subtle display, then wheels, and fountains or small garden fireworks are the ones for you. You could even get the little ones involved with some sparklers which are a fan favourite.
