Testimonials

  • Julia Dungworth, Science Teacher (feedback on a Royal Institution lecture)

    “Matthew was an entertaining presenter, explained the science very well and captivated the audience’s attention all the way through without having to resort to too many flashes or bangs – though everyone obviously appreciated those he did produce. The talk touched on many aspects of chemistry I have covered at school recently, so was very useful in that respect.”

  • Jill Wilson, Headteacher (The Gleddings Preparatory School)

    “Matthew presented to EYFS, KS1 and KS2 children, adjusting his presentation to perfectly match the learning needs of all three age groups. All three groups were wholly attentive, engaged and excited. Matthew is an excellent presenter.”

  • Angela McKeown, Regional Coordinator (Royal Society of Chemistry)

    “He is great on stage. His shows are really well-paced, not too technical but with plenty of science. Matthew is able to engage students of a wide range of ages and abilities”

  • Michelle Francis, Director of Science (North Durham Academy)

    “Highly-entertaining and visually stimulating. Would recommend and book in the future.”

    Your efforts in supplying and delivering another fantastic display of fireworks to illuminate the sky played a huge part in an even bigger process.

  • Chew Valley School, Matthew Tosh

    Science lecture with fireworks.
    I have received endless positive comments from both the pupils and staff involved. It really does make a difference when we can involve outside organisations in the education of our children, whatever their ability. As you know, science is in the real word, not in a text book, and you have clearly help to put the subject into context.

    Your help and the time you spent assisting South Gloucestershire Police Force contributed greatly in making the operation so successful.

    The response we’ve had from both our management, Comic Relief and the general public has been huge!

    I write to express my sincere thanks to you and your staff for the firework display held on New Years Eve. Once again I have received nothing but positive comments from those in attendance.
    I went to watch the display, which I felt was best you have provided yet.

  • Chris Hutchison

    Dear Alan, (Corporate Event)
    A bit thank you to you and your team for a first class firework display. I appreciate it must have been slightly daunting for the crew knowing that they were firing to an ‘experienced’ audience! They need not have worries though as they fired a cracking display and ensured there was plenty of pyrotechnic banter for the next hour or two!
    We really are grateful for you stepping in at the last minute for us. The evening wouldn’t have been the same without the excellent display.

  • Sarah Aumayer

    Dear all at Skyburst
    I have been asked by the Court De Wyck School Association committee to write to say a BIG THANKYOU for the excellent fireworks that you provided the school ‘Birthday Bash’. Im sure that all the children and adults really enjoyed the fireworks and it rounded off the event in style. It was a very generous donation and proved to be an excellent show. The whole event appeared to be a big success with all those who attended, and financially was our best ever! Thank you for the part you played in its success.

  • Tristan School Association (Local Support)

    Great show at Eastnor, I assume you won? All our group voted for you and you were by far the best!
    What was your playlist for the event, want to download the second song you played?
    Also, out of interest, how much would you charge for a display like the one you did at Eastnor, thinking of a wedding for myself.
    As a fellow Bristolian, (although living in Cheltenham now), please apply brissle rates! Ha!

  • Jemma

    Firstly I’d like to say your display was awesome last night. You should have won!! We’ll definitely be going to future events if you’ll be there.

    Secondly, any chance you could email me the track listings from last night (1/9/2012)? There’s a song I can’t get out of my head but I don’t have a clue who it is to search for. I know your busy but I’d be hugely grateful J

    Thanks guys for such wonderful memories!

  • Claire and Jamie’s Wedding

  • Bristol Round Table Fireworks Night

    We rely on the professionalism and efficiency of our suppliers and I must say that Skyburst’s magnificent pyrotechnic display truly awed and thrilled the crowds with both the scale of fireworks and the artistry in the presentation; absolutely first class. The charities we are supporting with benefit from over £20,000 thanks to the help of your brilliant team.

  • Michael Taylor (Wedding)

    Without exception we were all thrilled by the display you provided at the relatively short notice on what was possibly your busiest night of the year. You certainly achieved our specification of a visual display without exceptional sudden noise.
    As a father of a very happy bride I wanted you to know how grateful I am.

  • Tom Gouder

    A huge thanks and praise must be sent on to the amazing team at Skyburst the Firework Co. who bent over backwards only 2 weeks before the event. They took on the challenge of planning, designing, building and firing a finale to our nightglow and to top if all off in sync with our finale music track of which consisted of fast guitar & drum solo’s.

    As a firework enthusiast i was stunned with the quality of fireworks used and the professionalism shown by Alan, Luke and their team throughout. It truly created a unforgettable ending to a brilliant evening

  • Carolyn Randall

    We would like to express our sincere appreciation to all at Skyburst for your help and support. The fantastic firework display you provided really was the icing on the cake and made a wonderful finale to a fabulous evening.

    The concert has been a huge success raising in excess of £13,500 net profit for Hospiscare. This would not have been possible without your support. A very big ‘Thank You’ to you all from Ann, myself and all at Hospiscare
