PROFESSIONAL FIREWORK DISPLAYS

An overview of our range of professional firework displays. Enjoy your event and leave the fireworks to us!

A firework display by Sandling Fireworks will make your event an unforgettable experience for you and your audience. We fire displays for weddings, private parties, public displays, exhibitions and business events. Whatever the occasion do it in style with a display from Sandling Fireworks.

For almost 30 years Sandling Fireworks has helped people celebrate birthdays, weddings and anniversaries. We are fully licensed and insured display operators with a full team of BPA trained firers.  We give a high quality, reliable service that only an established and experienced company can offer. We have been providing firework displays for almost 30 years.

With our state of the art wireless digital firing system, we can even fire  synchronized displays from several locations simultaneously! Ideal for product launches and high profile events.

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. Prices range from £600+VAT depending on location and date, up to, well, the sky's the limit!  The firing time can range from as little as a minute for a  short sharp display right up to twenty-five minutes for a full length show.  You might find it easier to think in terms of cost per minute. A basic display for a wedding  should cost in the region of £100 to £200 per minute so a 5-6 minute display would cost £600 - £1,200. A 15 minute basic display for November would cost a minimum of £1,500. The more you spend the bigger and better the display. For top end wedding displays budgets of £5,000 or more are not uncommon. For full length firework spectaculars and pyro-musicals £5,000 - £10,000 will get you a very nice display indeed. The more you spend the better the display becomes because fixed costs such as transport, labour and insurance become a smaller proportion of the budget - so the more fireworks per pound!

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.

WHAT DURATION?
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. For weddings we find 5 minutes about right. Some like to have a shorter (and therefore more spectacular) display of 3 minutes. Firework lovers who are getting married might want a 10 minute display as it the highlight of the evening for the the bride and groom as well as their guests. For summer concerts 5-10 minutes is the norm. For product launches etc. 1 to  2 minutes of maximum impact fireworks make the event one to remember. For November displays 15 - 20 minutes should be considered and certainly no longer than 25 minutes. No matter how spectacular the fireworks people's appreciation will start to wane if the display is too long.

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. If you are using say, a farmers field for a display you will need to check your insurance covers you for the site.

HOW DO I KNOW IF A SITE IS SUITABLE FOR FIREWORKS?
Most existing venues will be able to tell you if they have had fireworks before and show where they are usually fired. 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 the event. This is a simple courtesy so that they know when and where a display will be taking place. If you are planning a large scale public display then it is best if you liaise directly with the emergency services because you are the organiser of the event and you are contracting us, a professional company, to fire the display for you. It is always a good idea to let local residents know of the event 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. Special circumstances might be that there is a very strong wind towards the audience and it is not possible to move the site around. Fog does not stop us firing but it might stop you seeing the fireworks! If you are organising a commercial event then weather might affect attendance. You might consider bad weather insurance.

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 cases 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 include traditional wheels and setpieces that make for a very entertaining display.

Sandling did us proud last evening. The fireworks were a very great success and the emails I have received this morning all include a mention of your display – “icing on the cake” and so on. The conditions were far from ideal but the display was perfectly organised so that the fireworks were all in view of our windows. The quality of the display was simply first class . The music was excellent and  thank you for your choice of that. Please pass my thanks to your crew for their good work.

The fireworks display was the best we have had at the Summer Ball. It was amazing and all the guests truly enjoyed the show. Your staff were really helpful and satisfied all ours requests. Thank you again for your help.


Just a quick line to say how pleased we were  with the display you laid on for our daughter’s wedding. It was a perfect climax to a very memorable day A local in the village watched the display and said that it was a better display than she had seen at the racecourse in November.
