Alchemy Firers meal

Alchemy fireworks firers on a night out
Some of the Alchemy Firers on a jolly!

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!

Happy New Year!

We’ve been a little quiet here of late but we’ve not been resting on our laurels – nothing could be further from the truth! We had a monumentally busy November Bonfire Night season with our wonderful crews providing jaw-dropping displays up and down the country. One of which was the annual Scouts Fireworks Spectacular in Christchurch Park, Ipswich. Our intrepid firer (and amazing photographer!) Dee Cannavan was on hand once again to catch these amazing images;

Without time to take a deep breath we went straight from Guy Fawkes celebrations into Christmas Lights switch on events providing not just pyrotechnics and fireworks but also falling snow and spaceflower lighting effects! As you can see below, these can really add to your event so do get in touch if you’re interested and we can provide you with a very competitive quote;

And so we find ourselves in January! A time for reflection and rest – or so you may think! The quieter winter months are a time for making new hardware and fixing broken hardware that suffers from the rigours of the display site! It’s also time for thinking about how we can streamline processes to make our lives here a little easier to enable us to provide you with even more spectacular displays (is that even possible?!) We’re also out on the road meeting existing clients to talk about their 2019 displays and also to meet new clients wishing to also have some of the Alchemy Magic at their next event. One of our New Year’s resolutions though it to check in here more often with more exciting news and behind the scenes action. We wish all out customers past, present and future a very Happy New Year!

Celebrating in style with Alchemy Wedding Fireworks

We were delighted to be back at the iconic and stunning location of Leeds Castle to fire a beautifully choreographed wedding fireworks display. We created the perfect mix of music for Sofia and Thomas based on their suggestions and using the wireless capabilities of our state-of-the-art firing system FireOne and our own PA system we fired a magical display for the happy couple.

Magical Maritime in Ipswich

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. Dee is one of our firers and has just successfully completed her degree in photography. You can check out Dee’s facebook page here.

Happy Anniversary Leeds Castle classical concert!

The Leeds Castle classical concert is a mainstay in the Alchemy Fireworks summer calendar. It’s an absolute joy to be a part of such a prestigious event at such a wonderful venue and for this year, the concerts’ ruby anniversary, their was a very special atmosphere and the grounds were packed with concert goers and their picnics! Fireworks to the 1812 and Pomp & Circumstance lit up the skies above the Castle to huge cheers from the audience and as the final bars of God Save the Queen rang out, we brought the concert to a jaw-dropping climax with a huge volley of fireworks including a 12″ shell underneath which we fired the number ’40’ in fireworks. The precision and technology of the hardware and the fireworks themselves means that with the correct placement on the ground and the correct timings down to the millisecond, we can create letters and numbers in the sky from the ground up. Pretty incredible stuff! Tickets for next year’s concert on Saturtday 13th July are on sale already but don’t hang around because they WILL sell out! You can buy yours here!
