10 of our lovely crew were due to have their BPA training updated last weekend so it was the perfect opportunity to get everyone together for a night out and to recollect the stories of last November! They were all treated to a sit down meal and drinks at the lovely Crown Hotel and Bar in Henlow, Bedfordshire. Guys from as far afield as Plymouth, Newcastle, Oxford, Brighton and Hampshire made the journey to join us on this annual event. We just hope that it didn’t impede on their Sunday session training course!
Alchemy Fireworks were delighted to once again provide the explosive entertainment for the Ipswich Maritime Festival. As part of this year’s celebrations we were asked to provide a short display of daylight fireworks consisting of noise effects such as screechers, whistles and reports and clouds of coloured smoke. We sourced some amazing new coloured smoke shells from our friends at Europla Pyrotechnics in Spain and along with these fired lifts of report shells and screecher candles. Daylight fireworks are not often seen in the UK but were certainly enjoyed by the crowds that had gathered at the Ipswich Maritime Festival. In the evening we produced a jaw-dropping choreographed display fired to a mix of recent chart hits. It’s a wonderful event to be a part of and the cheers from the audience at the end of the show topped off two extremely enjoyable displays. Photos courtesy of Dee Cannavan.
