The last safety tip we posted was to use portfires to light your fireworks. This one is even simpler, don’t drink and ignite. Now we are not party poopers nor are we trying to ruin your fun – we enjoy a good booze like the rest of you but please stay safe this year and keep the booze consumption until after the main event. Nothing is less attractive or dangerous than a drunken attempt to light a firework – you’ll look stupid and could cause yourself or others a serious injury. Plus by boozing after the event you’ll have something to celebrate – an amazing fireworks display.

The sparkle has definitely gone for Royal Mail strike or no strike. Even if they come to some agreement the damage has already been done. Many large and small business including John Lewis, Amazon, eBay and Argos are to discuss using alternative delivery services over fears that the strike will seriously disrupt business. The good news is at Monster Fireworks we do not use the Royal Mail so our delivery and business is totally unaffected. Don’t worry you will get your fireworks in plenty time for Bonfire. Buy fireworks online as the stock is already moving so order early to avoid disappointment. You can even call to reserve your fireworks.

Buy Fireworks – Do your own display!!!
This year’s Bristol Clifton Downs’ fireworks display has been cancelled due to lack of funding. A couple of years of bad weather coupled with sponsors demands for cash – despite low turnouts due to the weather- have caused the Bristol Rotary to cancel this year’s Clifton Downs display. It’s a real shame for fireworks lovers in Bristol as the shows were really good and very popular. BUT on the up-side why not forego the trek to the downs and have a display at home in your back garden for all your family and friends. We can give you the complete solution if you buy fireworks online or visit our shop. We will also keep you posted on any local displays…..

Just last night in BEIJING, Tian’anmen square dazzling firework drawings were used celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the people’s republic of china. The firework drawings were displayed on a screen-like installation on the Square. Gunpowder was fixed on thousands of spots on the screen and were lighted in a preset order to “draw” pictures. The fireworks were also to shape a Shenzhou spacecraft blasting off to the skies of Beijing. What an awesome spectacle!
On a much smaller scale and sometimes called lance work you can create shapes, letters, and words. Its usually made within a wooden framework and the shapes are made from small fountains. Which when lit together creates an outline of the desired shape in crackles and sparkles. For Bonfire last year we used a pre made one from Fireworks International called the “Skeleton”. It stood 6ft tall and had arms that moved up and down. The kids loved it! You can buy fireworks that say all sorts of messages from simple Hello, good night, and buy custom messages. If like the idea and you want to create a message to say in fireworks then call us.

It is a truly unique product an there isn’t anything like it by any other manufacturers on the market. Check out our video and buy fireworks online

There are lots of tips, guidelines, and rules for using fireworks safely. One of the ones we hold with highest regard is simply to use a Portfires or Weather proof lighter whenever you light a firework. This reduces the risk of you: lighting the wrong part; moving your head and body over the top of the firework; and generally fathing around with it. Portfires and weather proof lighters have a solid stable flame no matter rain nor wind. They can make it much easier to position next to the fuse and ignite the buy fireworks. Both these make great sense in typical British weather conditions and especially when you have to get a lot off the ground in a short space of time.
