A lovely email and video footage from a loyal EPIC customer 🙂
Great to hear from you!
I have not been able to come up to collect my orders the past few years. I hope you, Jimmy and the rest of the team are doing well.
Can you believe that this was my 9th Year buying fireworks for the annual display that I do for some friends?!
Anyway, I am more than happy for you to use the video. Unfortunately, it was out of focus for a moment at the start, but it worked out in the end. It was the first time for my daughter to film it.
In case you are interested, the firing order was as follows:
Block Buster 37 Shot
Humming Hornets 28 Shot x 2
Mad Moth 25 Shot x 2
Heavy Duty 64 Shot
Moving Target 105 Shot
Screaming Spiders 100 Shot
Aerial Atom 37 Shot
Gold Willow 50 Shot
Toxicado 84 Shot
Constellation 200 Shot
Sky Thriller Rockets x 3
As always they were outstanding fireworks which went off without a hitch (except when I was distracted watching them and let more portfire burnout), and the variety and effects were excellent. I always spend a long time designing the display to have variety, and this year worked out brilliantly.
The people who pay for the fireworks were utterly delighted and will be raising the budget again next year 😉
All the best, and I hope to come and see you guys next year (or sooner!),
WHAT: BARCOMBE BONFIRE SOCIETY 2018 WHERE: SPORTS PAVILLION, BARCOMBE WHEN: SATURDAY 17TH NOVEMBER TIME: 6.00PM – 11.30PM
The Barcombe Bonfire Society is one of only 35 active societies today which can trace their origins back to before the Gunpowder Plot of 1605 to the Marian Persecutions of the 15th century under the rulership of ‘Bloody Queen Mary’ Tudor. As a devout Catholic and in direct conflict to the decision of her father King Henry VIII she ordered that all Protestants should be made to attend the Catholic Mass were judged to be guilty of heresy and she tortured and killed over 300 people during her time on the throne.
Several of those who lost their lives were residents in the Sussex area and this event has continued since their deaths in the middle of the 16th century. The main aim of today’s Bonfire Societies is to raise funds for local worthy causes and freedom to support people whatever their religious or political standpoint.
The event is largely family orientated but still may be a little too frightening for the very young so be aware of this. There are processions including a dedicated children’s one along with other visiting Bonfire Societies who all support one another.
The participants parade in their traditional red and black striped tops as smugglers, zulu warriors and all manner of different things.
