I kind of feel like I’ve grown up with this client! I’ve known Nick Keeble from Haverhill Town council now since 1995 which was the first year I designed and fired their fireworks display. Things have moved on a bit since then. Back in 1995 I was 22, the display was fired with push buttons and had approx 60 cues and, in the days before Health and Safety, we were firing 5” and 6” shells from the recreation ground!
Fast forward 20 years and I have a few more grey hairs, the display is digitally fired with approx 500 cues and there isn’t a shell in sight! BUT, and it is a big but, this fireworks show really goes to prove that you don’t always need shells to create that WOW factor. With great music choices and innovative and clever use of material we can create the most stunning of professional fireworks displays. As an additional element of surprise we bring some close proximity effects within 8 metres of the audience to make it up close and personal.
