What type of fireworks do you use?

We only use category 4 fireworks for our displays.  These types of fireworks are not available to the general public but only professional firework companies.  The fireworks are much larger, louder and brighter than those which are bought in the shops.

When designing a show we use many different type of firework including aerial shells, barrages (cakes), roman candles, gerbs (fountains), bundles, combinations, single shot and mines.

Can I add music to my display?

Reaction Fireworks have an enviable reputation for choreographing music to fireworks.

We believe the combination of music and fireworks adds so much more to a display and makes for a more spectacular occasion.

What music should I choose?

We can choreograph fireworks to any piece of music, but some styles of music work better than others.  We suggest you start with a theme or favourite song in mind.

We always approach the selection of music in partnership with our clients.  This helps to ensure that the creative process is collaborative and that the final selection is agreeable to all parties.

Will rain affect my firework display?

We work hard to ensure all of our fireworks are waterproofed and protected from the weather and we won’t cancel a firework display due to rain unless there is flooding or a risk to people.

We get wet not our fireworks!

Will wind affect my firework display?

Safety is our number one priority and unfortunately the wind is our number one enemy, however cancellation of a display is extremely rare.

In windy conditions we may choose with agreement with the event organiser to fire a test shell and follow the track of the fallout.

We will do whatever we can to ensure a safe and successful display and may work with the organiser to move the spectator area or firing site.

We may choose to exclude long burning effects from the display or cancel the display completely.

If we cancel a display we will always work with the display organiser to re-arrange the time or date if possible.

Can I have a firework display at any time of the year?

Yes.  However, consideration should be given to daylight hours and when it will be dark enough to get the full impact of the fireworks.  By law a firework cannot be fired after 11.00pm unless the date of the display has dispensation such as November 5th, New Years Eve, Chinese New Year or Diwali.

Can my firework display be themed?

Yes.  We can select different colours, effects and accompanying music to fit any theme.

Reaction Fireworks have an enviable reputation for choreographing music to fireworks and have a large inventory of colours and effects which means we can deliver the most creative themed firework displays imaginable.

Are you members of any firework related professional organisation?

Yes we are members of the British Pyrotechnists Association (BPA) and Explosives Industry Group (EIG).

Can you provide a firework display at very short notice?

Yes.  Our rapid reaction team have even provided firework displays the same day!

For example the office received a morning call requiring a £3,000 firework display for a fairground operator in Hartlepool, our team were happy to deliver and the display was a huge success.

What is your site clear up policy?

We always clear up as much of the firework debris as possible following the display, leaving the site as far as is possible, just as we found it.

Do you sell sky lanterns?

No.  To be honest, we like the look of lanterns but they can be dangerous.  There are many reports of serious burns, danger to livestock and wild animals as well as often been mistaken as distress flares.

Do you sell retail fireworks?

We don’t sell retail fireworks but we highly recommend either Dynamic FireworksEpic Fireworks or Fireworks Direct for all your retail needs!  Please mention Reaction Fireworks when ordering.
