Bob Pilkington, the display manager for Pops 'n' Bangs has been involved with fireworks for over 20 years.
From humble beginnings as a safety steward at the local Scouts firework display (an annual event that regularly attracts crowds of 10000+ and with a turnover of £20,000) Bob went on to organise and manage the event for six years and then decided to get closer to the excitement and form a company to help other charities realise the substantial fundraising opportunity that fireworks can provide.
During the six years Bob was in charge of the event a total profit of over £50,000 was raised for the local Scouts. In addition to this over £3,400 was donated to other charities within the town.
Now of course Bob and the team put their expertise and knowledge together to ensure that whatever the event, whatever the time of year you, your family, friends and work colleagues can enjoy the wonderful excitement that only a firework display can bring.
Whatever the event let us bring that something special to make it go with a ‘bang’
How do I go about arranging this?
Following a site visit to your proposed venue, we will be able to design a display that accentuates specific features, or if preferred, one that allows us to blend in to the natural habitat.
We’ll handle all the local requirements to make sure that you stay within the law, and give your clients and prospects a time to remember!
Any excuse for a party is a good excuse for fireworks and with an unblemished safety record backed up by £10m public liability insurance, you’ll have nothing to worry about.
What events are fireworks suitable for?
Whether it’s an 18th birthday surprise for Julie, a 60th party for Grandad, a Wedding Anniversary for Mum and Dad, or a christening to welcome a new arrival into the world, a Pops 'n' Bangs party fireworks display will make your event go with a BANG!
We have even been asked to provide fireworks for divorces and even a funeral.
Children young and old will be in awe of the colours, sights and sound, all expertly fired by our experienced team.
Am I allowed fireworks at my venue?
Not sure whether you can have fireworks in your town or village? Don’t worry, we’ll take care of everything - we’ve fired in some very strange places and dealt with such problems as livestock, low flying aircraft, main roads, thatched cottages and more.
With Pops 'n' Bangs you’ll have a fireworks display that’s safe, and memorable for years to come.
