This years 5th November fireworks celebrations saw the 21CC Fireworks team delivering over 35 shows around the country from small community events to large scale city centre shows synchronised to music for over 75,000 people… and everything in between. With over 6 months in the planning, our production team managed to co-ordinate the loading and turn round of over 110 vans loads of material and equipment over 4 days, with over 100 man days required to deliver the 5th November fireworks shows all around the country.
21cc Fireworks Production Manager, Nick Barrass said
“The 5th November fireworks requires all of us to give an enormous amount of energy and time to ensure that every event is planned and delivered safely and professionally. Putting together these events is a big responsibility. It is incredible the amount of equipment that passes through our gates over the Guy Fawkes weekend. The success of this season is a real credit to all of our team”.
In the lead up to 5th November fireworks this year, 21CC Fireworks invested heavily in infrastructure with further expansion of the main preparation yard and the building of a 4th facility. The investment also included new vans, equipment, firing gear and in the training of staff. 21CC Fireworks as an organisation are trained to deliver the British Pyrotechnics Association (BPA) training course, meaning that all of the 21CC Fireworks shows are delivered using trained and experienced crew.
Company Director Geoff Crow was out in China in February and March this year to source new material ahead of this years 5th November fireworks season. He said
“It is really important to us that we continue to deliver quality, safety and innovation. That is what our clients are after. We designed a few special effects of our own this year, which were all really well received by the public. We have already sent some new designs to China ahead of next year and will be testing the prototypes in the early part of next year.”
