Special Projects

special-projects-suspension-bridgeWe love a challenge at Skyburst and have created some really exciting projects for events in the past. From a giant glittering tardis to a uniquely designed panjandrum no idea is out of the question!

We have used fireworks to create a huge sheep’s head, a logo for a festival, hearts and smiley faces and even fire writing.

Listed buildings and unusual structures can provide stunning backdrops for firework displays and Skyburst can navigate the intricacies involved. We recently fired a special display to mark the Olympic torch coming to Bristol by shooting streamers and confetti from the Clifton Suspension Bridge.

The Great Panjandrum

Here is an event where we re-created the Great Panjamdrum. A prototype weapon from WW2, where it would be filled with several tonns of explosives and travel up to speeds of 70mph. Unfortunately it was so unpredictable and had a high risk of injuring our own solders, this weapon was taken out of production very quickly.

The Tardis And Our Spectacular Chromotrope Wheel

We re-created the Tardis from Dr Who to compliment our Sci-fi themed competition show we fired at Southport British Musical Championships [hypa link to gallery]. Which we also used our uniquely created chromotrope wheel to accompany this.




  • Thankyou for making our Jubilee celebrations such a success. The fireworks display made a fitting finale to what was a most successful day!

  • I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for supporting the Red Nose Rally. The firework display at Lands End was fantastic especially given it was the brightest day of the whole tour! It made the end of our week long campaign all the more special and looked fantastic on the TV.
    The response we’ve had from both our management, Comic Relief and the general public has been huge!
