Whether you’re planning a display in your back garden or at a fundraiser, we’re perfectly placed to offer advice and guidance for an unforgettable event.

How to Put on a Quality Fireworks Display

With our range of premium and cheap fireworks combined with our knowledge, we can help you stage a display that spectators won’t forget any time soon. 

Carefully Plan the Display’s Running Order


Like all reputable firework shops and specialists, we recognise the importance of a well-structured display. As such, starting with a loud bang helps to grab the attention. This is why our firework suppliers suggest purchasing one of our rockets to kick off your display.

There’s no right or wrong approach to take after this opening. However, to keep people guessing, and to avoid boredom, switch between effects regularly.

The many cheap fireworks for sale at our Reading site are perfect for use one after the other, in quick succession, for a lively middle section.

Now you’re ready for the finale. As the most important part of your display, you must save the most visually impressive options for last. Structure your display like a gripping suspense film: an engaging start, well-paced and varied middle and an ending which lingers long in the memory.

Get the Right Fireworks

No matter which of our firework shops you visit, you’ll find an unmatched selection of premium and cheap fireworks. At The Firework Factory, we take the time to understand your needs. This allows us to provide advice tailored to your specific needs.

You can choose from a broad range of options, from Roman candles to compound cakes, and rockets to single tube shells. A genuine mix and match of everything typically provides a showstopping display.

Before the main event kicks off, and after it has finished, you can also provide sparklers for your guests in various sizes and colours.

Set Up in Daylight, Light the Fuses at Night

When staging a display in Reading or any other location, our firework suppliers always set up in the clear light of day. You can clearly judge the best position for rockets to optimise their effectiveness. Always remember, wide open spaces are best to plant fireworks in.

Of course, we strongly advise setting off your fireworks after dark. You will see all the intricate details in every explosion, making for a more visually impressive spectacle. Our fireworks for sale may be cheap, but you don’t want to waste your money with a day time display!

Safety First

No fireworks display, however spectacular, should compromise personal safety. When visiting our firework shops in Reading and Slough, our team offers safety advice for specific fireworks.

In a more general sense, you should always keep a hose or large bucket of water close to hand. If you need it suddenly, it’s ready and waiting. In addition, you should ignite premium and cheap fireworks using the proper tools. Crowds should watch from a safe distance, and you must keep pets indoors.
