Broughton Hall Firework Champions 2014

WHAT: Broughton Hall Fireworks Champions Event 2014
WHEN: Saturday 20th September 2014
WHERE: Broughton Hall Estate, Skipton, Yorkshire, BD23 3AE
COST: £18.00 for ADULTS £8.00 CHILDREN

Broughton Hall is a beautiful Georgian Country House which has been home to the Tempest-Baronets for over 900 years. The current residents are the 31st generation of the Tempest Baronets to make Broughton their home.

The hall is set in 3000 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds and is positioned just 3-miles outside of the town of Skipton, North Yorkshire. The hall recently underwent a massive refurbishment, whilst still carefully retaining the character and age of the property.

Last year Broughton Hall attracted crowds of more than 2000 spectators and the staff working for the Hall said that the fireworks event was superb and was complete with ‘brilliant entertainment and the best of Yorkshire’s food and drink and of course, camping’.

There are 3 teams competing who will each produce a magnificent firework display choreographed to music. The teams only use CAT 4 fireworks which are NOT available to the general public and are the loudest, biggest and brightest that the UK has to offer. The pyro comes from all around the World from China, Spain, Germany and Italy and will include all manner of different effects.

The firing order is as follows:

9:30pm – Phenomenal Fireworks, Standish. The team fired last year at Capesthorne Hall where I thought that the section fired to ‘Diamonds’ by Rhianna was stunning. The team provided displays all over the UK with a team of firers. Good luck. The display was designed by Andy Slinn and the firing system in use is FireByWire.

9:45pm – Skyburst the Firework Company, Bristol. This company has been in the fireworks business for over 30 years and it remains a family business and this is the third time they have fired at this event. With a team of 250 firers working all over the UK they are kept busy all year round firing displays of all kinds from small personal parties to huge corporate or national celebration events. The firing system being used is Fireone.

10:00pm – Optimum Fireworks, Yorkshire. Established in 2010 but the staff have fired for other companies for over 13 years before setting up their own display business. In their words ‘we’re not just passionate about pyrotechnics its much more than simply a job to us, we love them!’ The firing system in use is FireByWire.

Voting for the winner is carried out by text message and the audience choose their favourites and whilst the calculating takes place, the organisers and professional display team from the fantastic MLE Pyrotechnics will keep the visitors entertained with a finale show which is sure to take everyone’s breath away.

The fireworks event of the year has to be the Firework Champions. As with the other stately homes holding this prestigious event, you are able to just go along to enjoy the fireworks or indeed spend the day there with family and friends and perhaps camp overnight.

If you need any more information, please contact the organisers MLE via the site set up for the event:

We would absolutely love to see any video or stills you take on the night so if you could send them over to us at [email protected] we would appreciate it.

Good luck to all the competitors.

Sirotechnics Wedding Fireworks For Nadia and Eric

QUESTION: Who do EPIC FIREWORKS recommend when the customer needs something a little bit bigger than the most powerful consumer 1.3G fireworks available in the UK?

ANSWER: Sirotechnics Fireworks.

Why? Let us explain….

Our very good friends Nadia and Eric got in touch and asked us to provide them with some fireworks for their wedding having been customers for many years. On this occasion the guys who normally set off the EPIC fireworks were going to be at the wedding and they didn’t have anyone to do the most important job of firing them for them. So they asked us who would be the right people for the job. Our friendly team asked what it was they wanted and where the display was along with all the other usual questions and thought this was a job for our friend Simon at Sirotechnics Fireworks. The display was to be held at one of Yorkshire’s top venues – Swinton Park near Masham. Swinton is the home of the famous deer park, a fabulous restaurant and extensive manicured grounds. Sirotechnics being based in the Midlands, are able to travel to most parts of mainland UK without any problem. Sirotechnics do not charge any more for a display thats 3 hours away than one that is only 10 minutes away, and that is rare indeed.

EPIC put Nadia and Eric in touch with Simon to iron out all the details and the rest is history as they say! A pyromusical display with a huge finale is what the bride and groom wanted and i think judging by the videos and photographs they most certainly got it. The turrets of Swinton are very much like those of a medieval castle and provide some absolutely awesome photograph opportunities and memories to cherish for many years.

Sirotechnics approach to musical fireworks displays has earned them the title of British Musical Fireworks Champions in 2013. It is an approach which not only sees them deliver fine firework displays but also top class customer service leading to an all round excellent product. Their approach is like us at EPIC, no question is a question to many and the quality is more important to us than buy cheap and sell high. Reputation is what we all live by and as such EPIC fireworks recommend Sirotechnics as we know you will get the very best of professional fireworks displays in the UK and service that’s as good as ours!

Fireworks are not just for Bonfire Night, EPIC FIREWORKS supply fireworks all year round for Weddings, Birthday Parties, Diwali and many more celebrations. Get in touch with us to see what we can do for you!

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]
