firework party displays

We have huge stocks of fireworks from around the world. Our displays are renowned for their excellent value for money. We can produce lancework (fire writing) to your specifications. Words, company logos and pictures in fireworks are all possible.video 

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Because our displays are often for councils and corporate events we cost our displays plus VAT (unlike our firework packs which are all VAT inclusive). Each display is designed individually to suit your  needs and to take advantage of any particular features such a lake, landscaped garden etc.. Prices range from 600 + VAT depending on the location and date, and up to, well, the sky's the limit!  For top end displays budgets of 5000 or more are not uncommon. The bigger the budget the better the display becomes because fixed costs such as transport, labour and insurance become proportionately smaller.

WHAT DURATION?
It  depends on the nature of the event, the time of year and the available budget. For summer parties we suggest somewhere in the region of  5 to 10 minutes. For winter events you might consider 3 - 5 minutes more suitable to your guests do not get too cold! The shorter the display the more spectacular it will be because you are increasing your pounds per minute. This means larger fireworks can be used. You might find it easier to think in terms of cost per minute. A basic party display for a should cost in the region of 100 to 300 per minute so a 5-6 minute display would cost 600 - 1500 and there is no upper limit of course.

WHEN CAN FIREWORKS BE USED?
By law fireworks must not used after 11pm except for November 5th - 12 midnight, News Year's Eve, Diwali, Chinese New Year and New Years Eve, all 1a.m. With that in mind you need to make sure your displays starts before 11pm so that we have finished firing by 11pm. Please do not ask us to fire later, it is the law and a sensible  to ensure fireworks do not become a late night nuisance.

HOW MANY FIREWORKS DO I GET FOR MY MONEY?
Don't confuse quality with quantity!  For example, we could easily double the number of fireworks in one of our displays simply by using fireworks of half the value, but it wouldn't be such a good display. Leave it to the experts to create a display of maximum value and spectacle for any given budget.

DO I NEED INSURANCE?
You do not need to take out insurance for the firework display. Sandling Fireworks has it's own 5,000,000 insurance that will cover any loss, damage or injury from the firework display. Our insurance does not cover other attractions that you might arrange yourself such as bonfires, barbeques, bouncy castles etc. You should ensure the site itself has insurance in place to cover any incidents that do not involve fireworks. Most hotels, schools and sports clubs will already have this covered.

HOW DO I KNOW IF A SITE IS SUITABLE FOR FIREWORKS?
 If this is the first time the venue has been used for fireworks then we need to establish that it has sufficient safety distance for your display. Usually we will come and have a look at the site and this can be a good opportunity to discuss the display with you.

WHO DO I NEED TO NOTIFY?
For weddings, parties and small displays Sandling Fireworks will usually notify the police and fire service of your event. This is a simple courtesy so that they know when and where a display will be taking place.  It is always a good idea to let local residents know of your party so there are no surprises on the night. In particular farms, stables and other nearby places that might have animals should be told.

WHAT ABOUT THE WEATHER?
We can fire in the most atrocious conditions and rain will not usually be a problem for us. It is very rare indeed that we are unable to fire a display.

CAN I HAVE A QUIET DISPLAY?
Sometimes a display site may be in a sensitive area. It may be sleepy village or there may be stables nearby. In these case we can fire a quiet display for you. It will not be silent though. We will discuss with you the level of noise that may be acceptable. We will probably not be able to fire aerial shells although in some cases we may just limit their size. Quiet fireworks include cakes, roman candles and barrages that eject coloured stars, comets and quiet effects such as wriggling fish. If the site is suitable then we can also include traditional wheels and setpieces that make for a very entertaining display. 

Our display last night was very successful and many people commented on the quality of the fireworks, so many thanks for a great show,
