AJ Pyrotechnics

AJ Pyrotechnics is a small firework company based in Kent but with a big reputation. We were born out of the love and thrill of seeing fireworks and all of the team who work here are passionate about what we do and what we deliver.

Although formed in 2008, we are relatively new to the competitive display circuit, with our first competition being at the British Firework Championships in Plymouth in 2017 and are thrilled to be in our 2nd consecutive year at the MLE Firework Champions event.

Gaining experience from being in the company of some of the best firework display companies in the UK has raised our status. We are growing in confidence in the competition display circuit and we feel we are becoming worthy competitors.

We know you are going to love our musical composition and our astounding coordinated pyrotechnics which will showcase this fantastic venue at Belvoir Castle.

Thank you to MLE for the opportunity for us to compete again and all at AJ Pyrotechnics wish you and all our fellow competitors a fantastic night!


Xplosive Fireworks Ltd is a member of the Xplosive Group of companies that also embraces the award winning Illusion Fireworks Ltd. Xplosive was setup in 2018 predominantly as a retail fireworks business but now exploits and opening in the professional firework display market more specifically corporate clients and concierge services.

Xplosive Fireworks provide few but extremely high quality bespoke firework displays for select clients across the UK, the team's specialism is producing captivating and emotionally charged shows choreographed to music with split second accuracy using their state-of-the-art digital firing system FireByWire.

This will be Xplosive Fireworks debut competition and the Oxford based team are very excited to be heading to Belvoir Castle in August to take part in Firework Champions!

Atom Fireworks

First and foremost we would like to thank MLE for inviting us back in 2020, for what will be our 5th consecutive year in the Firework Champions events.

For me (the designer) this location is somewhat special, it was at Belvoir Castle seven years ago watching the displays that I thought, "I think I could do this". It sparked my imagination for the integration of fireworks with music, so finally being asked to compete here is quite literally a dream come true.

We would like to think that by winning three out of four competitions we know a thing or two about designing and executing a fantastic pyro musical firework display. We source pyrotechnics from across the globe to bring the audience something refreshing with great impact.

This year we are up against some really tough competition, one team being responsible for taking numerous Firework Champion victories and British Championship titles. Some would fear being against such a talented team, however for us it simply means this is time to grow, to improve, and to focus even more than before.

If one thing is certain, you the audience are going to have a night of fireworks entertainment unrivalled in the UK. We will deliver our best performance yet and we are certain so will the other teams.

We provide many firework displays across the UK annually, from wedding displays, bonfire shows and NYE events.

We have worked with the Military, Council's, Round Table's, Festival organisers and so forth. The biggest event in our calendar would have to be the UK's biggest 360 degree firework display, that show is something totally different and a production we are proud of.

We look forward to seeing you all on the night and wish the other teams the very best of luck.
