Gala Fireworks

Like many fireworks display companies, Gala Fireworks was born out of a burning passion for fireworks and pyrotechnics. We take great pride in every display, whether it's a small wedding show with 20 guests, or a full-scale public festival with 200,000 spectators. Our team of professional firers are trained to level 1 and 2 of the British Pyrotechnics Association training scheme. This means you can rest assured that we will design, rig and execute your firework display as safely as possible, at the same time providing a sensational and spectacular finale to your event or big day.

We are a multi award-winning firework display team having achieved the following recent accolades:


1st Place - 2013 Belvoir Castle Firework Champions Event

Firemonkey Pyrotechnics

This will be our fourth year at Firework Champions and we are thrilled to be asked back to be part of this fantastic event.

Having won the Eastnor Castle event in our first year and competed last year at Arley Hall, we enjoy coming back to Firework Champions every year. It is a family welcoming atmosphere and there is some good friendly rivalry between the competing teams bringing you the best shows possible.

Our passion for fireworks started from a very young age when firing jumping jacks and catherine wheels on November 5th, now being involved in this industry on a professional basis is a dream come true.

We provide shows from small intimate weddings all the way up to large scale corporate shows and everything in between. Our tag line is ‘Passionate about Pyro’ which speaks for itself through our shows. Whether it be intimate wedding shows, large scale public pyromusical displays or close in battle simulation, we love what we do. Our passion is palpable and has earned us a vast range of clients including Premier League football clubs, Ladbible and numerous local authorities.

We are a small crew but between us all, we boast over 50 year’s experience in the industry and due to being a close knit group of friends, we all have an input into music selection, show design and product choice. This makes winning the competition even more for us as it really is something we have achieved as a pyro family.
