The Leeds Castle Mythical Fireworks Displays had it all: a specially commissioned story and soundtrack for the display; fireworks fired from several different sites, including fireworks on water; the necessary considerations for working with fireworks at a historic and sensitive venue; plus the incorporation of lighting and lasers into the firework display.
Added to that, there was a serious need for the display to be a success after there were a few problems with the 2006 firework display (produced by another display, we hasten to add). Glenn: “We knew before we accepted the display that Leeds Castle were under serious pressure to put on great firework displays this year. Naturally, as the firework contractor we knew that most of that pressure would be on us to make it happen safely, spectacularly, on time and on budget. There’s always that pressure for a fireworks company though, whether it’s expressed so clearly or not – you have to deliver the goods, and there are no second chances.”
“We wanted to make sure we gave the Leeds Castle events extra attention in the planning stages, to really make sure the management there were confident and happy after what they had been through last year. The joy of looking after every show personally is that we know that everything is being prepared and planned to the standards that venues like Leeds Castle expect and deserve – from the soundtrack production and show design to simply having the best kit and people to do the displays.” Both firework displays were sell-outs and the feedback from the Kent audience and the Leeds Castle management makes it all worthwhile. Glenn “Leeds Castle is such a fantastic and beautiful venue for fireworks, and we get on really well with the team. We’re already looking forward to our next display at the lovely Kent venue!”
“Thank you so very much for exceeding our wildest expectations and securing the future of Leeds castle fireworks. You know how important it was for us – and boy, did you deliver.” Victoria Wallace, Managing Director, Leeds Castle.
