New Years Eve Fireworks Bristol 2014

Monday 29th December 2014

After having a quick search on the Internet there doesn't seem to be that many events with fireworks this year. That said quality rather than quantity and the http://www.theavongorge.com/christmas/new-years-eve  hotel looks like it could be awesome way to see in New years. The back drop of the Avon gorge will be a spectacular place to see beautiful visual effects light up the sky. Also a little further a field at http://www.longleat.co.uk/fireworks  they have a wonderful night planned with musical firework display and sky lantern accent. Both would be great way to welcome 2015.

 
If you plan on staying at home or are having friends round then back garden fireworks are another great way to do something special. For very little money you can create a sensory treat that will lift any party.
 
 
 
Here's a few top tips 
 
1) Check the size of the area you are going to fire them from
2) Choose suitable fireworks for that space UK fireworks will be 5m, 8m, 25m safety distance from your audience
3) Make sure there is nothing that could catch fire or hit that is close
3) For New years just use a few - less fuses to light
4) Read the instructions of the fireworks in the day and familiarise your self where the fuse is located
5) Don't Drink

These are some of the most common questions we get asked each year from customers when buying their New Years fireworks
 
1) What size fireworks can I have?
2) Can I use rockets?
3) I want one of those single fuse things
4) How long will it go on for?
5) How big does my garden need to be?
 
The best place to start from is to think about where you are firing them from. One of the main factors is how much room you have to work with garden, park or field whatever it is this should determine which fireworks will be most suitable.
 
In the UK fireworks at present have either 5m, 8m or 25m safety distance. This a guide for the distance between the firework and your audience. The firework will have been tested to see how far the hot debris that is shot out falls around it.
 
Get an idea of the size of your firing area by walking it or even using https://www.google.com/earth/  using the tape and measuring it.Then when you come to select your fireworks check there safety distance before you buy them.

There are lots of other factors but specifically for New years we find customers prefer to use less but bigger fireworks for New Years. It's popular to just use a single ignition firework and a big rockets so there's not many fuses to light. 2-3 minutes is perfect for back garden party as most people will want to carry on partying - it very different to Bonfire night.
