THE ONLY WAY IS DYNAMIC!!

The Only Way is Essex, Chris Drake, Nigel Claydon & Dean Heap

We received a call out of the blue from one of The Only Way is Essex cast today (Friday 14th December) asking to speak to the director. Lil Chris asked us if we could be available last minute to provide a stunning firework display for the TOWIE Christmas Party Episode in association with FancyDressex.com that was being filmed that night at a secret location in the heart of Essex.Not wanting to disappoint we quickly arranged a team consisting of director Nigel Claydon and another of our highly experienced senior operator Dean Heap.

Organising a Display

Putting on an event for the public requires a great deal of attention to detail, and when pyrotechnics are involved, there are even more things to consider to make sure that everyone has a safe night as well as lots of fun.

Here is our checklist of things to consider if you are thinking of organising your own firework display.

Checklist

  • License
  • Insurance
  • First aid
  • Fire extinguishers, sand buckets and water
  • Plenty of torches

Who To Contact

  • Coastguard if your display will be withing 5 miles of the coast

Suitable Locations


Firework Safety

Fireworks are fun, and it can be all too easy to get carried away with the sights and sounds of display and forget the Firework Safety Code. Some of safety guidelines may seem a bit obvious, but a helpful reminder never hurt anyone, whereas carelessness around fireworks can.

Safety

  • Only buy fireworks marked with the British Safety mark BS 7114 or with a European Standard CE mark
  • Follow instructions carefully USING A TORCH not a naked flame
  • Light at arm’s length USING A PORT FIRE not a lighter or matches
  • Don’t go back to an already lit firework

Firework Display on a Budget

Looking for money saving tips for your firework display? The number one tip is to look for quality fireworks that are in a sale!

With fireworks, it is essential that safety is never compromised – not at any price, so rather than looking for cheap imports opt for:

  • Quality fireworks that have been reduced in price
  • Discontinued fireworks
  • Bumper packs

To ensure that the fireworks you are buying meet the right safety standards look for the British Standard mark BS 7114 on the box. Changes in legislation will also see European Standard code added, so look out for a CE mark too.


The Big Fat Sponsored Wedding – Pyrotechnics Courtesy of Dynamic Fireworks!

There is plenty of media hype surrounding the wedding of the year – Yes, Jack and Michelle’s Big Fat Sponsored Wedding – and we have been asked to put the pyrotechnic bang into their party!

The wedding is set to take place on 14th December at Plum Park Hotel in Northamptonshire and amongst the many fantastic freebies that the happy couple have asked for in return for a bit of publicity is a Dynamic Fireworks display.


Stand Opening Goes Off With A Bang At Ipswich Town FC.

Putting the sparkle into an event is our forte, and recently we had the opportunity to dazzle the crowds at Portman Road.

Ipswich Town Football Club wanted us to create to create a spectacular event for the renaming of their now called Co-Operative Stand during half time in the opening league home game against Blackburn Rovers.

Fitting a firework display into a half time slot meant that we were really up against the clock, but we didn’t fail to disappoint. We impressed the crowds with a pyrotechnic burst of specially designed fountains, which the crew had to work quickly to set up. The fanned pods in the display were ready within one minute, and then the crowds looked on in wonder as sound and colour filled the stadium.

FOOTBALL AND FIREWORKS

Premier ship action often has it’s own share of fireworks, on the pitch,Dean Ashton at Dynamic Fireworks but imagine our surprise when football fame came to Dynamic in the form of Dean Ashton.

The ex-England and West Ham striker popped in to purchase some of our pyrotechnic wonders, and while he was at it, didn’t mind posing for a picture or two and offering up some wonderful words about our range of fireworks on offer.

As you can see from the photographs, Dean is pretty keen on the noisy fireworks we sell, such as the Super Show Rockets, baptism of fire cake and the Defcon Thunder barrage; his selection will definitely make sure that his celebration will go off with a bang!


RAF MARHAM DISPLAY

Marham FireworksMarham FireworksThis year No.II AC Squadron celebrate their 100th anniversary of their formation back in 1912, and is the oldest fixed-wing flying squadron in the world, and lives up to its informal motto ‘second to none’.

So in honour of their centenary year Dynamic Fireworks provided a firework display for all the members of the squadron and some selected high ranking dignitaries.

The funny thing is with the members of No.II AC squadron is that they think we are nuts to be setting off these fireworks, items like 6″ shells, and 2″ large bore cakes. When we turn round and say ‘what about you, you fly at hundreds of mph strapped to 600lb bombs etc and we’re nuts” they reply “but we’re miles away before it blows up, you guys are only metres”.

We here at Dynamic Fireworks have a long standing friendship with the guy’s and girls of No.II AC Squadron based at RAF Marham, and have provided many firework displays over the years, and this year is much the same, we’ll go into more details about that later.

As with any Military base security is of high importance, but once we passed through security we headed over to No.II AC Squadron’s head-quarters, the walls of which were filled with medals and pictures going back over the years. Showing the old planes the used right the way through to the Tornado’s of today.
