This was our 7th successive year of firing the RHS Hampton Court Gala Preview evening fireworks. Working closely alongside the RHS team to produce the soundtrack we were then tasked with designing a fitting display not just for the music but also for the venue. Firing close to an historic building such as Hampton Court requires careful consideration in material choice and positioning. 5 back positions for larger calibre material combined with 5 front positions spread over a frontage of 60 metres allowed us to create some stunning chase sequences whilst aerial shells were pumped over the top for extra impact. The result was a magnificent, very closely choreographed show which showcased a huge range of material.
