Blaze Fireworks

2020 sees Blaze Fireworks return for our third year to Firework Champions, we would like to thank Mat Lawrence and the team at MLE for once again giving us the opportunity to compete in this great event and hope we can once again do him proud with our display.

Andrew Pittam, the company director single handily runs the company with a small but dedicated team of display staff. Founded at the end of 2014, we have slowly grown the business; heavily investing every penny earned back into equipment and stock. We now have an ever-increasing client base of both corporate and private customers, providing displays for bonfire night, weddings and even a Royal Artillery Officers Ball.

As with Previous years, our display for the Newby Hall audience is big, bold and precise. We will be utilising some great new effects in our display as well
as some of the most colourful products around. Having narrowly missed out on first place last year, we are eager to take home the trophy!

As an avid fan of the Fireworks Champions events from I can guarantee you will have an amazing evening of entertainment! If you have never attended the events before, what are you waiting for, get your tickets and picnics, sit back and enjoy!

Best of luck to the other teams competing in the event, we look forward to working beside you once more.

Daventry, Northamptonshire

MLE Pyrotechnics was founded in 1999 just before the millennium and has become one of the leading companies in the firework industry.

We specialise in providing unique high quality displays all over the world ranging from weddings to large scale outdoor events and import a wide range of premium quality fireworks for their own use and supply to other UK companies.

Clients include the UK’s largest free bonfire night event as well as other key names such as Sainsbury’s, Oxford University, Karcher, Morrisons, the RAF, MTV and Ford.

MLE have been firing displays internationally since 2005. In 2014 we were awarded 1st prize in the St Brevin firework competition. In 2018 we were invited to fire a 10 minute pyromusical display at the 2018 Liuyang firework contest.

Sister company, FireByWire Limited, manufactures digital computerised firing systems used for accurately setting sequences off at the press of a button. This technology is used worldwide by companies and is one of the most sophisticated systems available.

Our attitude is to constantly evolve and improve what we do. We work with the very best suppliers and factories around the world and combine this with a team of passionate crew members bringing a diverse skill set ranging from programmers through to engineers.

In 2013 we introduced the world famous Vaccalluzzo Italian fireworks to the UK, working with the factory we are exclusive importers/distributors for the UK marketplace. They also hold the same agreement with Pirotecnia Zaragozana from Spain.

We would like to thank you all for attending the event and we hope you enjoy the evening and fantastic displays.


DroneSwarm is part of MLE Pyrotechnics providing full colour LED drone light displays.

We produce everything ourselves from the drone hardware through to the 3D show designs. Because we also provide fireworks, lighting and lasers in house we are in the very unique position of being able to offer unrivalled choreography combined with other visual artforms.

We are the first company in the UK to be awarded permission from the CAA for the production of ongoing drone displays with and without fireworks.

Subject to the weather on the day you'll witness one of the first ever drone light shows to take place in front of an audience. Get your cameras out and prepare to be amazed as a swarm of drones take to the sky and perform a routine with vivid colours and movement across the sky.

Element is subject to any local ATC approval and weather on the day. Provided as a free element of the ticket.

Guy is an aerobatic pilot, a glider pilot and an occasional tug pilot. He is Eight times National Glider Aerobatic Champion at unlimited level and has been on the British team for three World Aerobatic Championships. Guy has been flying aerobatics since 1993 and displaying gliders since 1998, he has two world records tandem paragliding with his twin brother Richard, is an advanced aerobatic instructor and examiner and CAA Display Evaluator. Guy also flies the Boeing 787 Dreamliners for British Airways from Heathrow.

Rob is team flight leader and started fly in 1983 at the age of 17 (before he’d even learnt to drive!) and soon advanced up the ranks, becoming an instructor in the late 90’s and progressing from Instructor to CFI at one of the biggest gliding clubs in UK – The Gliding Centre at Husbands Bosworth – in 2013. Rob also now works on a number of major projects with national organisations related to inspiring youngsters and others into taking up careers and hobbies in aviation, whilst also developing projects to capture a more mainstream audience. In Rob’s spare time he also fly’s a number of aircraft from different gliders, tug aircraft, classic chipmunks, motor gliders and his own Robin DR400 around UK and Europe.

Kvant Lasers

Kvant Lasers UK is perfectly positioned to provide a comprehensive range of laser display services. From a single projector displaying a logo through to multiple high powered beams laser mapping the houses of parliament.

Although originally a laser manufacturer, we think about our business differently. We don’t consider ourselves to be in the laser equipment business but rather the entertainment business. This means we go above and beyond just laser shows to create everything from custom laser displays and laser mapping through to 3D video and holographic projections, right up to fireworks and water shows. You name it, we can do it.

During the past 25 years we have been presented with many opportunities, embracing these exciting challenges and experiences. Being part of teams in entertainment shows of all shapes and sizes for a range of brands has exposed us to many different approaches. This has helped create who we are today.

We are proud to be involved with Firework Champions and look forward to lighting the skys between the shows.
