DMR Pyro subcontracted under SB Pyrotechnics to crew the main 2015/16 Bideford New Year’s Eve fireworks display fired from Brunswick Wharf. We spent the day preparing the professional category 4 fireworks ready for the big show at midnight.
The real challenge was keeping everything dry and secure whilst mother nature threw her worst at us! We were battered with wind and rain from 10.00 until 21.30 where a break in the weather gave us the chance to lay out all the firework tubes and barrage cakes.
The show consisted of over 50 professional cakes and candles as well as more than 250 aerial shells. A real sky filling show with raw power and a little over 8 minute duration. The show was hand fired and controlled by chief pyro Steve Barnes. DMR Pyro look forward to working with SB Pyrotechnics in 2016 and into the future.
Neither SB Pyrotechnics nor DMR Pyro had any association with the pyrotechnics fired from Bideford Quay.
