Category Archives: Tesco Fireworks


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.

Our local Tesco has just released this year’s brochure of their 2019 offerings.


This contains the recommended purchases for a small family display.

This includes:
12 small rockets.
A selection box of 14 fireworks.
15 Sparklers.
3 safety lighters called Portfires.
A small fountain cake.
A 16 shot barrage.
All for a very reasonable £49.

Plot Night Garden Fireworks Pack #EpicFireworks

However, our Plot Night Pack for £24.95, would get you:

17 Rockets (1.3G containing 25% flash powder for extra Ummph)
A selection box of 15 fireworks
A long-lasting Fountain
A 28 shot Sonic Cake

Add to this a pack of Portfires (4) at 96p and 15 sparklers for just £2.16

The total price comes to Just £28.07 saving £20.93

“Every Little Helps” as they say.



Once again, as we do each year around this time, we compare our prices against the top supermarkets across the UK. Whilst some offers look good at first glance, when you compare them against Epic Fireworks prices, you could be missing out – big time.

Take for example a small family fireworks pack from Tesco, comprising of a Solaris selection box, a pack of 5 shot roman candle tubes, 5 packs of sparklers, 2 Catherine wheels, 5 rockets, a 16 shot barrage and 3 safety lighters. On Tesco’s website you will be asked to part with a not inconsiderable £50.00 of your hard earned cash to buy this.

When you compare the pack recommended by us with the same 2 Catherine Wheels and the Solaris selection box, a hundred shot missile cake, not 5 rockets but 10 and in place of the 16 shot barrage, with our offer, you get a 32 shot barrage. Furthermore, as with Tesco, we offer 5 packs of sparklers giving you 20 in total and 4 safety lighters (portfires) and all for a vastly reduced price of just £34.22.

As many of the major players in the supermarket world offer similar packs at around the same price, around £50-£60 here at epic we can give you much better value saving you well over 40%.

In addition to a wide selection of small garden and relatively quiet fireworks and we also stock a HUGE range of the bigger 1.3G fireworks which supermarkets are not able to sell.

Here, we specialise in fireworks – we don’t sell anything that is not firework related and in addition to this, being a long standing fireworks company, we are in the position to supply all types of fireworks all year round. Furthermore, as we buy in huge quantities we often beat the high street firework prices by up to 50% in most cases. Moreover, we will be here the day after bonfire night as many “pop-up” shops selling fireworks will be long gone by the 6th.

Carrying one of the UK’s biggest ranges of fireworks also means we have something to suit everyone, from small selection boxes at just £7.56, almost silent 16 shot barrages to huge finale cakes rated at the highest legal limit of 120Db and with a video of each firework you can get an idea of the effects to expect before you buy.

Quality fireworks at wholesale prices supplied all year round may explain why after 30 years in the industry we getting bigger each year with almost 10,000 returning customers annually and wedding celebrants all year round, we must be doing something right.


Tesco Vs Epic Fireworks. Sharpshooters Roman Candle Pack.

Tesco Vs Epic Fireworks - Sharpshooters Roman Candles by Standard Fireworks

Tesco supermarket, we widely accept as being one of the top 4 in the UK but when it comes to pricing and fireworks, we have got it covered.

The Sharpshooter Roman Candle pack from Tesco is a full carton quantity and as such, you have to take 24 of the same item for the not inconsiderable £180.00 including VAT.

However, if you came along to Epic Fireworks, you could have a single pack of 4 of these beautiful roman candles for £14.94 inc VAT. Even if you did choose to have 6 packs, the Epic price is just £89.64 inc VAT. That just begs the question, why wouldn’t you?

The staff at Epic work hard at ensuring that customers leave with what they wanted and needed and we give a fantastic warm welcome and of course, a hot drink is readily available to anyone who would like one.

The upshot is simple, if you want brilliant value for money, bring your £180.00 along to Epic Fireworks, sit and chat with one of our fantastic and fully experienced sales team with a hot drink and we will help you to put together a fantastic display for your Bonfire Night festivities.
