DIY CONSUMER DISPLAY PACKS COMPARISON

As the 2019 Bonfire Night season gets underway, we compare our three best selling DIY consumer display packs which are all the same price and meet different needs.

All our DIY Consumer Display packs are created with the customer in mind. In the £295.00 bracket, we have three packs which pretty much cover all bases. We spend time in China designing, selecting and firing several products before they meet our exacting standards.

CONSPIRACY

51 FIREWORKS (14 BARRAGES (CAKES) AND 37 ASSORTED ROCKETS – RUN TIME 7 MINUTES PLUS ADDITIONAL FOR ROCKETS

This is our number 1 best selling firework pack which this year contains a selection of barrages, big a small with rockets that can be fired intermittently throughout the display.  Primarily, this pack is intended for a small/medium sized crowd and contains everything you need for a first-class display filling the sky with a multitude of effects and colours.

Our Conspiracy Pack is widely used at events including scout groups and community events where a small gathering is expected.  It does contain loud whistles and screeches along with other sonic and sky filling effects and sounds. This pack contains one of our biggest sellers which has stood the test of time; Thunderous Finale.

BLACK POWDER

82 FIREWORKS (22 BARRAGES (CAKES) AND 60 ASSORTED ROCKETS – RUN TIME 12 MINUTES (IF FIRING EACH ITEM INDIVIDUALLY) PLUS ADDITIONAL FOR ROCKETS

This pack was created with younger children in mind and contains a larger number of smaller but equally impressive little barrages (cakes) along with a huge range of rockets. If all the items are fired individually, this will give you a 12-minute display whereas if they are fired in pairs (where appropriate) it will be a little over 7 minutes.  The pack also contains one of the most popular little barrages in our range; Humming Hornets.

AFTER MIDNIGHT

10 FIREWORKS – ALL BARRAGES (CAKES) – RUN TIME 6 MINUTES

The last of the £295.00 packs is the elegant After Midnight which contains only large barrages (cakes). The pack is aimed at those wanting a high impact high noise display and certainly ticks all the boxes. This pack also boasts the fabulously loud Screaming Spiders.

So, there you have them – check them all out on our website which also has videos with every item in stock so you can view before you buy. Unfortunately, these packs cannot be changed or amended but if you are able to get over to see us in Tankersley, you also get several free products for collecting in person.

DIY. Whats the story ….

The Barnsley Boyz 50th Birthday Party Fireworks

Here at Epic, we know a thing or two about fireworks having been in the fireworks business for nearly 30 years now so we certainly feel qualified to offer advice relating to what it will take to make your event go with a bang!

We have, as you can well imagine, fired literally tons of pyro over the years.  Some good, some not so good but at the end of the day, we have weeded out the weaker stuff and left ourselves with a plethora of goodies with which to thrill our customers resulting in a range of great fireworks to suit every pocket and style.

If you have limited space and budget, why not try our wonderful Guido’s pack.  Named after the man himself, Guy Fawkes (Guido is the Spanish equivalent of Guy), it is collection only due to the number of individual fireworks but it does represent brilliant value for money.

The pack contains:

  • 23 rockets
  • 11 barrages
  • 15 fountains
  • 10 roman candles
  • 1 wheel
  • 1 mine
  • 10 packs of monster sparklers
  • And, a huge lantern

All this for £99.95 including VAT.

Alternatively, those with a little more space and a higher budget, you have a couple of choices.  You could go with either the After Midnight pack £295.00 inc VAT which contains some of the best barrages on the market (as detailed in Mens Health 2011) the incomparable Thunderous Finale and the Screaming Spiders or the Conspiracy Pack.

There are 10 of the best barrages in our range in the After Midnight, an all-round easy to light, fool-proof pack.  If all the items are lit consecutively this is an absolutely beautiful display of around 5-7 minutes duration (depends if you want to fire the two Thunderous Finale and 1 Screaming Spider together as we would recommend).

If you think that this is a little short in duration (although I can assure you that five full minutes of fireworks is a good display) you could consider our best seller which is the Conspiracy Pack.  Again priced at a very reasonable £295.00 inc VAT, it contains 10 barrages of varying sizes plus 46 rockets.  Just the timings for firing the barrages concurrently would be just over 7 minutes so add the rockets to the mix and you will have a sky full of fireworks for around 10-12 minutes (depending on how quickly you can light the rockets!)

These are of course just a very small sample of what is on offer from Epic fireworks and the packs are really easy to use and if you take away the fact that they are considerably bigger in size than your run of the mill garden fireworks they are just the same.  A little preparation before dark makes things a great deal easier and you can easily have ‘buddy’ firing where one side fires first and then the other so neither are likely to be returning to a burning firework.  We provide the set up plan, safety instructions, goggles, rocket launching tubes, safety lighters (portfires – brilliant as they are windproof and stay lit for a few minutes each so plenty of time to go from barrage to barrage) and to cap it off, if you come to collect any of our £295.00 or above packs, you will receive 4 big beautiful Sky Storm rockets too.

If you are considering putting on a show this year and would like our help and advice, please call us on 01226 749587 7-days a week or email me via the following [email protected] and either myself or one of my colleagues will get back to you as soon as possible.  We can look at your venue online and check out what space you have, recommend layout and firing order and even recommend insurers (if applicable) who may be able to help you.

A £100 Display

Bonfire Night 2005

And on with the show – this is the next step up – a £100 display – basically, same format as the £50 display, but with a bit more duration and some larger fireworks as well, with a grander finale.

Opening – Super Conic Fountain

For height, duration and density of effect this is a great way to open your show. Catch peoples attention, allow the people hovering inside to come out, and get everyone ready for some pyro!

Next up – King Cobra – A chunky little barrage, sends up mixed effects and introduces some volume into your display

Middle order! Mega Rockets – You get loads, so consider sending them up in groups of three or four for added effect – or use as singles for a longer display.

Pre-Finale – Six Machine – A tall firework, with each shot breaking six times, giving the impression of many fireworks going off, a novelty effect and a great performer.

Finale – Magneto – A larger firework to end, sending up lovely lingering loud bursts – professional quality effects to end a show done on a very affordable budget – especially if people chip in a bit 🙂
