This year, as well as the extensive Epic range we have introduced some smaller selection boxes to appeal to those who are on a tight budget or indeed would like something a little quieter.


The hugely popular Ultimate Barrage Box by TNT fireworks was sold previously by Lidl for £19.99 so of course, ours is just £14.96. It contains 9 decent sized garden fireworks ranging from shot tubes to single effect smaller cakes and a couple of multi effect barrages.

They emit a huge array of sound effects and colour and will suit anyone with a smaller garden who would prefer something a little less noisy.

Epic Goes All Price Comparison – Asda


Its Bonfire Night fast approaching so all thoughts turn to grabbing the best fireworks available bearing your budget in mind.

So here at Epic, being the public-spirited group of lovelies that we are have gone all price comparison to make sense of the fireworks out there.

This week, we compare with Asda’s range. Now they are not a bad quality item or anything like that but for your money, they are still not great value. I would like to compare first of all the ‘Mystic Deal’ family selection pack with an Epic equivalent:

Asda’s Mystic Deal:

• 2 packs of 5 sparklers
• 18 piece selection box
• 2 small barrages

Cost inc. VAT £50.00

Epic’s Penny for the Guy Selection

• 14 piece quality Standard Cliffhanger selection box
• 3 packs of 5 1.3G specially selected rockets (15 in total)
• 1 Award-winning 1.3G barrage
• 1 Chinese lantern

Cost inc. VAT £44.95

So with your £5.00 change, you could also get 10 sparklers, 1 magic stars barrage and a big shot barrage and still have change for a coke! (obviously to photograph it against!)

Then, to one of their large consumer display barrages, ‘The Eye of the Storm’ which has 101 shots of varied effects and lasts around 43 seconds. The cost, a not inconsiderable £100.00 inc VAT.

For the same £100.00 you could have the spectacular ‘The Phantom 500’ multi-effect barrage which lasts a staggering 2 minutes 25 seconds and costing £39.95, and still, have enough for one of the UK’s best finale cakes, the fantastic Screaming Spiders at £44.95 for 55 seconds of sky filling mayhem.

So, your choice is simple, go for inferior, over-priced fireworks from your local supermarket who have no real specialist knowledge of fireworks but can tell you all there is to know about bread or you could consider a trip over to see us at Epic Fireworks and get double the goodies, with double the effects and which last for more than double the time – simples!!!


Tesco Vs Epic Fireworks. Star Fire Roman Candle Pack.

Tesco Vs Epic Fireworks - Star Fire Roman Candles by Standard Fireworks

The Roman Candle is the basis for a great many of today’s fireworks and is central to many a garden display on Bonfire Night around the UK. However, the cost of the humble roman candle can vary greatly as can the effects.

Once again we would like to compare pricing with Tesco Supermarkets for the beautiful Star Fire roman candle. The effects are varied: green comets, pink glitter bursts, golden crackle clouds and spiralling purple tails to name just a few all firing 5 shots per item.

Tesco price: £150.00 including VAT for 6 packs of 4. They are not available for sale separately.

Epic price: £89.64 including VAT for 6 packs of 4. We also sell them individually at our Head Office sales outlet at £14.94 per pack of 4.

So why would you not choose EpicFireworks when we offer great value for money, excellent customer service and good old-fashioned Yorkshire hospitality with a cup of tea or coffee on request.
