How Big are Fantastic Fireworks Rockets?

No joke, this year’s range of rockets comes in something called “Pyromesh” which means they have to taken out of a metal mesh (with a pair of safety gloves) and the rocket stick has to be snapped into its place on its hinge. It sounds complicated, but the reality it’s a very simple process which allows us to sell you bigger rockets than ever before! Here are our rocket weights: Metallica – approx 3.5oz Rainbow Warrior Rockets – approx... Read More

Fireworks Display Essentials #2 – 19 Shot Fireworks

Fireworks display planning usually revolves around when to fire your rockets and when to launch the big multishot fireworks. This is a fairly sound plan, but the best organisers think about ‘framing’ the display. By this, we mean what goes on on the flanks. For this, look no further than 19 shot fireworks. 19 shot fireworks are cakes which are small and hexagonal in shape. The biggest and best multishot fireworks can be made to look even better if there are complementing effects going on alongside them.
