How much space do I need for my garden fireworks display? 

As one of the UK’s leading suppliers of garden fireworks that you can let off at home we are often asked how much space is required for a fireworks display.   If you think back to the days when televisions were housed in huge boxes or when mobile phones were as big as bricks you’ll have an idea of far fireworks have likewise progressed. Back then fireworks were big beasts that needed a huge amount of space in which to be watched safely.   These days manufacturers make fireworks small enough to be enjoyed from... Read More

How rockets work and how to use them safely

How rockets work Rockets consist of a propellant charge contained in a cartridge or case attached to a stick, which provides stability by providing drag. The propellant is usually compacted gunpowder burning over a formed surface (most commonly a cone with a hollow centre) and the rapid rate of burn causes a large volume of gas to be quickly created and forced out of a clay, or more usually aluminium, choke or venturi.  This provides the force necessary to lift the rocket quickly into the air.  As it does so...

CE fireworks – What you need to know

CE fireworks – What you need to know   The CE marking on fireworks came into effect as of  4th July 2010 under the Pyrotechnics Articles Safety Regulations 2010, and this meant that all new fireworks that were to be imported and created for sale in the European market after this date must be marked with the CE standard. However from the 4th July 2010 there was a transitional period where the previously marked BS7114  fireworks still could be sold and used up until 3rd July 2017. This transitional period was...

The effects in this pack of... Read More
