Frequently Asked Questions

How much space is needed for a display?

This all depends on the display type. Some of our effects require as little as 1m safety distance, and some of our large aerial shells require hundreds of meters of distance. We’ll help you make the most of your available space in order to produce the best display possible – safely.

Do you have public liability insurance?

Yes, we are fully insured to carry our all aspects of our work by a comprehensive insurance policy. A copy of this can be provided upon request. 

Is organising a display difficult?

We make organising displays easy. We deal with everything from site surveys, risk assessments, planning and of course the set-up and clean-up. We deal with gaining any required permissions and work closely with the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) to ensure our productions run glitch free. 

How long do your displays typically last?

It’s a bit tricky to say in all honesty. For public displays we would recommend a minimum of 12 minutes and for weddings we would recommend a minimum of 3 minutes. On the other hand; we have fired spectacular displays as short as 30 seconds before. We would always recommend intensity over duration to give a greater impact but guarantee a display beyond comparison each time. 

Can I customise the display to match my event's theme?

Absolutely! We work closely with clients and organisers to understand their event’s theme, colour scheme, and any specific requirements. Our creative team will then design a display that complements your vision.

Do I need a special license to hold a firework display?

There is no specific license needed to host a display of any sort at your venue. As a professional display company, we ourselves are licensed. You will however require permission from the land owner if you are firing the display from land you do not own.
