Dynamic does fireworks for X Factor Stacey Solomon

Stacey rose to fame in the sixth series on X Factor, with her crazy excited personality and stunned all the judges and public with her truly sensational singing talent.
The Dagenham born singer finished third overall in the competition, and had a number one hit with The X Factor finalist cover of ‘You Are Not Alone’ and later on her solo single cover of ‘Driving Home for Christmas’.At a recent concert where Stacey performed, Dynamic Fireworks were contracted to provide a stunning spectacular finale to end of the event. Stacey performed a stunning set covering great songs like Cold Plays ‘The Scientist’, Keane’s ‘Somewhere only we know’ and ‘Feeling Good’.The concert crowd went wild for the former X Factor star as she finished her amazing set.Then it was Dynamic Fireworks time to set the stage alight, not literally! But we started a large display full of large calibre aerial shells, big bore cakes and barrages culminating in a display lasting 15 minutes which resulted with massive cheers from the surprised crowd.
 
  After the show director Nigel Claydon was able to meet up with Stacey Solomon who was more than happy to chat and have photos.We have worked with many musical artists over the years these events we spend many hours meticulously preparing these displays from performing site visit to assess all aspects of the event, from knowing where the stages will be positioned, crowd viewing point, emergency services access, working out different firing positions and fallout zones relating to which way the wind direction will fall on the night.Once we’ve performed a site visit we can then create a full risk assessment taking into considerations all the factors relating to transportation to and from the event, hazards to our operators during setup and de-rig, risks to the general public at all times and any site specific requirements.

The next stage is to decide on the most suitable pyrotechnic for the site, and also any wind conditions that may arise. For example in high wind condition willow and brocade effects would be removed in favour of peony bursts, or only using all aerial effects if there is obstruction to viewing low level fireworks such trees, barriers or stage. Once the display has been written we can then discuss the site, display components with the operators who will be on site preparing the firework and discuss any queries they have.Then on the big day, our operators will arrive on site to prepare the fireworks and layout the site for the display later that day. For a large scale display our guys could be preparing a show for up to 10 hours before the actual firing time.Just a little insight into the behind the scenes work to provide a professional firework display
