To run us home to Bonfire night, I give you a series of 7 articles, based on what I’ve fired. Each of them sets the simple theme of a nominal budget and suggestions about what to buy and fire on that budget. Essentially, whatever you have is enough to have fun! The budgets will be £50, £100, £250, £500, £750, £1000 and £5000. I’ll start with £50. Your basic, budget-budget- Cat 3, as always. For those crunching with the times! Basic, cheap and cheerful, but still a great way to enjoy a family display.
Starter – Epic Fireworks “LAVA”
Start off with a fountain! This has a nice duration, warms people up and builds the anticipation as the plume builds.
Next- Majestic Fireworks “ACTION ZONE”
For the quality of breaks, duration and colour at under a tenner, this takes some beating. With comets, coloured starts, twinkle and 1.3G volume on the breaks it’s a great way of getting peoples attention.
Middle order- This is a budget display, so use a few ROCKETS! Epic Fireworks “SUPREME” at £12.50 gives you a variety of effects, booming bangs and the popular woosh and burst – and keeps the display going for a few minutes- just what you need.
Pre-Finale- Epic Fireworks “MAD MOTH” – Another great cake, 5 sets of 5 effects, another amazing value piece, and pacey, which is what you need to set up your finale of.
Paramount Fireworks “FRAGMA” – Big, big breaks, lingering burst size and volume and sheer quality. A great one to end your show on.
And there we have it. Even a small budget can produce a great little show. Enjoy.
