110,000 Rockets in the air at once doesn’t sound easy. It wasn’t by the looks of it. Bournemouth last weekend witnessed the world record attempt to beat the official most firework rockets launched in a given time. Back in 2006 the record for the most firework rockets launched in 30 seconds is 56,405 set at the British Fireworks Championships in Plymouth 2006. The new attempt got off to a troubled start with bad weather from the outset and some technical adjustments that resulted in the whole thing exploding. Unfortunately for the organisers there was a big crowd expecting a display. I don’t think they hung around for too long… They could always buy fireworks online from monster fireworks and try again!

The Bristol Harbour Festival is one of the best festivals in the South West of England and one of the biggest free events in the country. For us the fireworks are always the best part and this year was no exception. Fired from Bristol’s beautiful historic city centre harbour at 10pm sharp the sky was illuminated by a spectacular 15 minute display. Performed and synchronised to music it was a truly pyrotechnic masterpiece that everybody stopped what they doing to watch. The Kings of Leon was the best check out the video clip. Next weekend is Ballon Festival Bristol is great for fireworks.
This year we will have a great selection of large rockets that you will only be able to get from specialist retailers like us. Brand new for this year are the King Cobra rockets from Absolute Fireworks which will be one of the new products featuring this season.
As well as selling retail fireworks Monster Fireworks runs a display team and covers the southwest. The display side has been operating for about 3 years and most of the displays so far are primarily fundraising events, Schools, and clubs with an audience size of 400 to 5000 people. We have been invited back to every show we have done and have enjoyed working with all the event organisers to put on a safe, successful, and professional displays.
Checkout our clip from this years Kingsdown Golf Club “Picnic in the Park”. A Great venue with a excellent line up of family entertainment. The fireworks accompanied Stephen Marquiss the concert pianist for a truly memorable evening.
Want to get that professional look and feel into your display? Then take a look at Finale Barrages. These are excellent for emphasising the main parts of your display. They are best used in combination with other products.
Finale barrages are quick to setup and easy to use as you only have one fuse to light. Comprising of row / rows of roman candles and larger ones are combined with mortars. As their name suggests they are best placed near the end of your display. In our website you can play videos to see what they do and you can buy fireworks in the “BIG STUFF” section.
Kingsdown Golf Club – Fireworks Display
Monster Fireworks do fireworks displays as well as selling retail fireworks. On Saturday 25 July you can see us at Kingsdown Golf Club. There will be music, entertainment, food and a fabulous fireworks display. We are keeping our fingers crossed for some great weather (the thunder is rumbling as I write this) and we hope the event is even more of a success than last year. This year we’ve lined up some even BIGGER stuff like some massive candles and new super sized shells for the finale! We hope that everyone enjoys the event. We’re planning to add some video footage of the display so check the website displays section soon.
Reaching approximately 80 -100m high and a wallop that could be heard for miles they out performed our expectations.
There are four types of effects in each pack:
- Gold to Green Chrysanthemum, Red Fireflies
- Purple Peony with Glitter
- Gold Willow, Blue Pistil with Glitter
- Silver strobe
Kimbolton, Fireworks International, and Absolute Fireworks all have different ways of doing this. The most common method of packaging the rockets is to wrap them in a wire cage. The idea is if the rocket were to accidentally ignite the cage would contain the product.
This is great however it causes another problem you have to get them out and this is easier said than done.
The absolute fireworks wire cages are the easiest to remove as they split in the middle. They come with gloves to protect your hands and if you untie all of the wire knots you can remove the cage without the need for wire cutters.
