Quiet and Family Friendly Fireworks

Here at the home of beautiful fireworks, we know that not everyone will love loud bangs, screeches and whistles so we have a small selection of low noise fireworks which concentrate on effect and colour as opposed to noise.

Selection boxes are usually a good starting point for any decent garden display and we have chosen some for just such an occasion.

The Dynamic Selection Box is a cracking little box, packed with some of the loveliest fireworks around. At just under £7 it contains 15 high quality and high performance fireworks with 10 fountains, 4 roman candles and even a Catherine Wheel for good measure.

Of course, this is the basis of a great night so what should you add into the equation. Much of that decision is based on the budget that you have available to you. The box doesn’t contain any rockets or barrages and could do with one or two small barrages and sparklers as well as one of our selection of low noise rockets.

Good additions would be the fantastic Astroplane Rockets, some Sky Blast Roman Candles and a couple of Magic Stars and Trailing Tails for a lovely evening – not forgetting sparklers, just bear in mind that sparklers should not be used by the under fives.

What we need to know before you buy is how large is your garden/firing space? Can you safely use rockets or fanned items? And what is your budget?

If you are holding a sizeable event for the school or local nursery, why not give us a call and have a chat with a technician about your firework display – at the end of the day, all we sell are fireworks of every size shape and noise rating or sound effect so our specialist knowledge is unparalleled. We are open 7-days a week and can answer most questions either by telephone or email so drop us a line at [email protected]

Epic Fireworks Display In The Garden – Clerodendrum Quadriloculare

FROM the middle of January to the middle of February, the shooting star tree (Clerodendrum quadriloculare) puts on its magnificent display that resembles an explosion of fireworks.

A shooting star tree in full bloom is one of the most magnificent of all plants. Alas, like many real firework shows, the display is all too brief.

Bonfire Security for Hedgehogs

Security guards armed with torches and chicken wire are keeping 24-hour watch to stop hedgehogs hiding in a bonfire at one of the country’s largest fireworks displays.

The tactic at the Three Counties Showground in Malvern, Worcestershire, is part of a campaign to raise awareness of the danger bonfires pose to hedgehogs.

The British Hedgehog Preservation Society (BHPS) has teamed up with cleaning company Spontex, whose mascot is Ernie Hedgehog, to promote the campaign.

Clifford Soper, from Spontex, will spend tonight keeping watch to make sure hedgehogs stay away.

He said: “A bonfire looks like a five-star hotel to a hedgehog searching for the perfect place to hibernate.

“Most people don’t think about checking a bonfire, or better still rebuilding it, before lighting which can result in the death of all sorts of unsuspecting wildlife asleep inside.

“The Three Counties bonfire has followed BHPS advice and encircled its bonfire with one-metre high chicken wire.”

The Halloween bonfire and fireworks display will take place at the showground tomorrow night.

So, if that was not enough to encourage you to check your bonfire, here is a picture of a baby hedgehog in someone’s hand. Do not deny the cuteness. Save the Hedgehogs!

Failing that, next week we will publish a great recipe for a roasted hedgehog with Garlic Sauce (kidding).
