GO COMPARE – EPIC FIREWORKS Vs TESCO

Every year we get asked, “why visit your company when my local supermarket does fireworks as well?”  As a specialist company, licenced to sell all year round. We have a MASSIVE range of over 300 fireworks, offering much greater variety, whereas your local supermarket will probably have a limited selection of small fireworks mostly rated at 1.4G, meaning the fireworks can contain no more than 5% flash powder, ours can contain up to 25% flash powder.

As we have our fireworks custom made in China to our exacting specifications (the “Epic Brand”, is known worldwide as being producers of one of the top ten best blogs in the world), we specialise in the larger cakes, which are particularly suitable for Pubs, Clubs, Scout groups, Hotels and family gatherings for those with 25 metres safety distance but we do also supply the smaller Selection boxes, Rockets, Roman Candles, Sparklers, Catherine wheels, and fountains, all the usual fireworks we all know and love as for most of us our first experience would have been a small bag garden display with limited space of 5-8 metres.

One or two companies will ask you to place your order, then advise what time and date the van with your fireworks order will be there at the store as they have limited storage capacity, their fireworks being stored off-site. This does not pose a problem for us as we have an underground storage facility that is the size of Old Trafford, fully stocked all year round. Buying in bulk gives us bigger discounts when placing our yearly order, which in turn means that we are in a position to pass our reductions on to you, the customer.

At this time of year, we will sell huge amounts of fireworks every day and our customer database contains names of our valued customers, many of whom have been visiting us for over 20 years and in this industry, you must be doing it right to be around 20 years later.

HAPPY DAYS @EpicFireworks

Anyone who has ever visited us will be aware of “The Epic experience” as we pride ourselves in customer service not only do we have over thirty-five very friendly staff, most of which are fully trained fireworks display firers, we have full facilities on site being one of the only custom-built fireworks shops in the UK we can accommodate wheelchairs and offer a disabled toilet and baby changing facility’s, tea and coffee for those who arrive parched after a long trip, we will look after you from start to finish.

Just 2 minutes from junction 36 of the M1 right in the centre of the UK we are easy to get to.

After we have discussed your needs, given hints and tips, we will pick you order from our 14 40 foot containers, load your vehicle for you and offer free stock for collecting rather than paying the specialist courier we have to use by law, if you are really lucky you might also get a pork pie for the journey home.

FAN OF FANNED CAKES? – EPIC HAS IT COVERED!

The fanned cake is very similar to any other firework being made up from a number of tubes which essentially are numerous roman candles affixed to one another at an angle resulting in shots being fired either in sweeping or straight fans.

They can either be a full fan where each is a bank of shots that fill the air either sweeping from start to finish like the awesome Tracer Bullet to a full expanse fan like the Lightwaves Barrage.

Here are some of our top fanned cakes:

FESTIVAL OF LIGHT – £64.98 – 25 second duration – 9/10 noise level – 50 shots

This cake sweeps left to right and has a great impact as it is VERY fast firing. Multi-colored peonies throughout this definitely have to be seen first hand to fully appreciate the bright colours.

FESTIVAL OF LIGHT 50 SHOT FAN BARRAGE

KING OF THE JUNGLE – £99.96 – 60 seconds duration – 9/10 noise level – 168 shots

An arch of colour and noise this has great ground and aerial effects that fill up the sky. A great cake with a long duration which is packed with red, green and gold with a few blue hints. A beauty which with superb timing and at a minute duration, a great standalone piece or as part of a bigger display.

SPECIAL EFFECTS – £64.98 – 40 seconds duration – 9/10 noise level – 50 shots

This z-shaped fan fires banks of 5 shots of huge red-tipped fizzing palms which hang in the air – big, bold and above all, BEAUTIFUL.

HUMMING HORNETS – £9.98 – 30 seconds duration – 6/10 noise level – 28 shots

Small in stature it may be but it more than makes up for this shortcoming by being one of the best-selling pieces in the EPIC range. With red, green yellow and blue colours, it brings a smile to everyone’s face and the fanned multiple shot finale makes it one for any occasion. Check it out and turn up the volume on this sonic cake (as I said it is not loud) and listen … I cannot see this one without smiling!

TEN FOR UNDER A TENNER EACH

TEN DIFFERENT FIREWORKS FOR UNDER TEN POUNDS EACH AT EPIC FIREWORKS

Of course, here at Epic, we have a HUGE range of fireworks of all manner of different shapes sizes and prices but here is a quick rundown of the top ten fireworks for under a tenner based on sales.

Now whilst all fireworks will have SOME sound, they do differ greatly so some of these are on the quieter side for the garden with young children whereas some are particularly loud. Each item can be viewed in action by clicking on the link below the description.

G-FORCE BARRAGE – SHOTS 28 – DURATION 30 SECS – NOISE 6/10 – COST £9.98

This was added to the Epic range last year and was an instant hit with our customers. Medium paced with great effects including tailed comets that leave a thick trail of glitter in their wake before bursting into a stunning strobing brocade.

WHISTLE POP MIX CAKE – SHOTS 27 – DURATION 23 SECS – NOISE 5/10 – COST £9.98

Another new to the range for 2018 this is a charming little firework with a great zipping sonic sound and beautiful aerial effects. Includes spinners, crackles, spinners and glittering crackles. A beautiful firework.

FANTASIA FOUNTAIN – FOUNTAIN WITH MINE BURSTS – DURATION 60 SECS – NOISE 2/10 – COST £4.92

Fountains have always been a firm family favourite, and this is no exception. This fountain has a great duration which throws a cloud of crackles skywards periodically – a must-have for any garden display.

HALO FOUNTAIN – FOUNTAIN – DURATION 50 SECS – NOISE 2/10 – COST £4.98

This low noise beauty crackles, sparks, and showers spark high into the air. Great for all due to low noise beginning with gold glitter, green falling stars and then finishing with multi-directional clouds of crackles.

Multi Effect Halo Fountain #EpicFireworks

SUNFIRE SELECTION BOX – SELECTION OF SMALLER FIREWORKS – 15 PIECES – NOISE 2/10 – COST £9.96

It contains 10 fountains, 4 roman candle shot tubes, and 1 catherine wheel.

Firstly, selection boxes are great for a small garden display due to their short safety distance and low noise products. It contains a great selection of little fountains of all colours and shot tubes with multi-effects and topping it off with a Catherine wheel (these are very good at not sticking BTW). An excellent quality product that will not break the bank.

THUNDER BLAST ROCKETS – 5 ROCKET PACK – NOISE 8/10 – COST £7.94

This pack is inexpensive and yet contains great effects so better bangs for your buck. These have a loud report (the sound made when the effects are dispersed) and include peonies, dragon eggs, large brocades, and pink and green stars. A great addition to any show whether big or small but be warned they are loud.

BLAST OFF SHOT TUBES – 8 CANDLES – NOISE 6/10 – COST £7.98

Don’t be fooled by the low price. These shot tubes are great value for money and for those who are not keen on the debris left by rockets but love the effects, they are a great alternative. Great starbursts, crackling palms, dragon eggs, and glittering stars fill the skies having all the ingredients of a big rocket with a great price tag.

SATURN FIVE ROCKETS – 5 ROCKET PACK – NOISE 8/10 – COST £9.96

Once again Epic has sourced rockets which will not break the bank with outstanding effects for our customer’s enjoyment. HUGE bursts fill the sky with colour and effects – what more could you want?

SIX FOOT SPARKLE WHEEL – CATHERINE WHEEL – DURATION 60 SECS – NOISE 3/10 – COST £9.96

A beauty of a Catherine wheel which packs in changing effects for a massive 60 seconds with lots of different coloured glitters with gold, green, blue and silver sparkles ending on a super-fast showering of sparks of all colours being emitted. Absolutely beautiful.

EPIC FIREWORKS - Six Foot wheel firework for firework displays

DR THRUST BARRAGE – SHOTS 25 – DURATION 20 SECS – NOISE 7/10 – COST £9.98

This is one exceptional little barrage and has graced the Epic range for many years. Deep red, rich blue and vivid green comets break into huge crackling stars and red comets breaking into beautiful brocades and finishing on crackling dragon egg effects to finish. A large number of our Epic DIY display packs include this cracker of a little barrage.
