Now this is pretty cool.
The Kelpies are 30 metre high horse-head sculptures, weighing in around the 300 tonne mark and are considered the world’s largest equine sculptures.
Construction of The Kelpies began on Monday 17th June 2013 and on Friday 18th April The Kelpies was officially launched 🙂
An awesome firework display, animated projections and an amazing light show, all designed and fired by the world-renowned French pyrotechnics display company – Groupe F.

Blitz Fireworks – Winners of MLE’s Firework Championships at Broughton Hall
The winners in the first of a number of unique firework events are the fantastic team from Blitz Fireworks of Crewe, Cheshire, where the audience vote via text message for their favourite.
Blitz Fireworks have 15-years of firing experience as one of the UK’s largest professional firework display teams and put this valuable knowledge to the test on Saturday as they took on Impact Technical and PDC Fireworks who sadly experienced some technical difficulties.
Blitz was voted as the best and most impressive with an eclectic mix of music, this absolutely beautiful display was indeed the deserved winner with brilliant correlation between the music and the pyro against the spectacular backdrop of the beautiful Broughton Hall. Blitz hit it just right with massive multi-effect shells including bursts of chrysanthemums, giant willows, walloping great big palms and some incredible reports, it really was indeed something to see.
The next leg of this wonderful series of events takes place on Saturday 3rd August at Stanford Hall near Lutterworth, Leicestershire. The teams competing are:
- Flashpoint Fireworks of Milford, Surrey
- F1 Pyrotechnics Ltd of Wineham, West Sussex
- Spitfire Pyrotechnics Ltd of Coventry, Warwickshire
If you do get the opportunity to go along, we would love to see some photo’s or video footage.
Have a great time.
