Happy Birthday 10th Anniversary
Thank you to all our loyal customers, this is our 10th anniversary year, Yes that is a whopping 120 months of Pyro Perfection. throughout the month of October 2013 we will be celebrating this milestone with different offers and events, come on down and join in the celebrations it will be great to see the old faces and catch up before the crazy rush begins, benefit from the offers, and take a trip down memory lane to see some of the vintage pyro product samples I have pulled out of the archives, can you remember the Triple Peanut, or the Thunder Dome...
Order early! as Typhoon disrupts supply ?
'Typhoon "Usagi" hit southern China at the end of September, over 3.5 million people were affected as winds of up to 180kph were recorded, toppling trees and blowing cars off the road, all modes of transport were affected and even stock exchanges were temporarily closed. you may all have seen this reported on the major news channels, this has disrupted the 2013 firework distribution, and some suppliers are quoting extended delivery times, some will even miss the season this year. Our stock levels at our off site bunker are good as we always endeavor to have our main orders placed by the end of the previous year but even some of our deliveries are certainly going to be late October. We recommend our customers order early this year, as we expect an unprecedented high demand after October if our last minute competitors get caught without stock. We do not want to let our loyal customers down, so you have been fore warned.

The Underground Bunker - Now even better for 2013!
The Underground Bunkers showroom is stocked and ready for the Bonfire season. Classic barrages are back in stock, Olympica, Brazilian Bombshell, Quantum Power and the amazing Caged Tiger Pro. In the rocket section we have the Awesome new Weeping Willow, Doppleganger, Fright Night and Terminal Velocity rockets which are joining the classic Big Brother, King and Resurrection Rockets. These are as big as they come and, at the Fireworkguy with our 1.3g high hazard storage you're only paying for the rocket, they're not in the pyromesh packaging which costs so much. And of course, we have all the excellent favorites you keep coming back for. Remember, we are situated just to the back of "Hot and Tasty", the premises where we have been for years. This year again we have extended our car park, so just drive inbetween Cundy Cross Cars and Carters Hair Salon off Grange Lane, Cundy Cross and enter directly into our private car park.
1.3g High Hazard Fireworks
Stocking 1.3g class "high hazard" product has certainly given us advantage over our competition, who often stock large ranges of watered down 1.4g basic fireworks. The investment to our storage facilities both on and off site has proved invaluable. Once again, our 2013 rocket stocks are second to none. At the FireworkGuy, you are paying for the rocket not the packaging. This is why we attend industry events and displays throughout the rest of the year, to achieve the best range of great performing pyrotechnics for you.
As a specialist outlet, we source products where the price reflects performance related value for money. If you don't want to be looking enviously over the fence, then a visit to the FireworkGuy is a must.
As Seen on the BBC...
Thank you to the Barnsley Chronicle and BBC Radio Sheffield, Toby Foster Breakfast Show, who both ran pieces about THE new firework, "Long John". This has been named after our very own Firework Guy, John. Royal Party Fireworks, a Swedish brand, named the firework in honor of John for his outstanding work with the firework company in 2008 and 2009. Long John is almost 4ft and is probably the tallest firework on sale. It fires 95 large shots in under a minute, in a left to right 'machine gun style'. Call in and have a look at the firework for yourself! It's on display at our Cundy Cross store or visit the Barnsley Chronicle or the BBC websites.
Safety at firework displays is paramount. For those wanting further guidance: Health and Safety Executive publish two guides, HSG 124 'Giving Your Own Firework Display' and HSG123 'Working Together on Firework Displays'. Also see http://www.berr.gov.uk/fireworks/
