Music of the Night – Royal Citadel, Plymouth

Music of the Night 2012

This week-long series of concerts features songs and music from many popular West End shows and is staged in the Royal Citadel – home of 29 Royal Commando Regiment. We have been involved with this amazing series of concerts for many years. Bearing in mind the historic importance of the Royal Citadel, our selection of suitable material was very important at the design stage. As on past occasions, the fireworks were fired from various locations, including the roof, to create intense and very visual displays.

Maidstone Proms in the Park.

Proms-at-Whatman-Park

To add to the festivities, as the orchestra played Land of Hope & Glory at the end of the concert, we provided a varied and entertaining display to suit the occasion.

Cunard Queen Elizabeth II Departing Liverpool

Southhampton Boat Launches

To celebrate the inaugural visits to Liverpool of both the Queen Elizabeth and Queen Mary II in different weeks we were asked to provide intense and spectacular displays for each ship as they left the City of Liverpool. This display was fired from a barge positioned in the dock area so that both the guests on board and the many thousands of people watching these luxury ocean liners departed.

P & O Adonia Naming Ceremony, Southampton

ADONIA Boat Launch

Once again we were back in Southampton to provide both onboard effects during the naming ceremony and a large scale – barge based fireworks display in the evening. Dame Shirley Bassey was the Godmother for this latest superb addition to the P & O fleet of cruise liners. The ceremony was accompanied by large CO2 Confetti Blowers using silver Mylar confetti – a special type of reflective surfaced confetti, single shot Aero Cannons with streamers and various pyrotechnic effects. All were fired at the same time as the traditional bottle smash moment, creating a very celebratory atmosphere on board. Later in the evening we fired a 10 minute barge based display choreographed to a medley of some of Dame Shirley Bassey’s most well known songs including Goldfinger, Lets Get This Party Started, Diamonds are forever and This is My Life. A beautiful and visual display which was truly appreciated by all present.

L’Oreal Colour Trophy Awards – London

L'OREAL TROPHY

In addition to providing firework displays Pyrovision also provide a range of indoor special effects. Again we were pleased to be asked back to provide various effects for the 2011 L’Oreal Colour Awards ceremony held in the Great Room of London’s Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane. This year we provided CO2 head jets, Dry Ice/Low smoke simulators which were used at various points throughout the evening and Streamer Cannons fired at the end of the evening. The streamer cannons are shown in this video clip.

Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons

To be asked once again to stage a display at Raymond Blanc’s highly acclaimed, two star Michelin restaurant and hotel in Oxfordshire is a real privilege. Guests were able to view the intense, vivid colourful display from the lawned area just outside the restaurant looking across the grounds and the clear night sky provided a beautiful backdrop for the colourful array.

It is always nice to receive favourable comments:
“A huge thank you to your crew for, yet again, another incredible display. The guests were overwhelmed last year and seemed to love them even more this year. They really were fantastic and I am sure you gave us an extra minute of display as well, so thank you very much.”

We also have video footage of a wedding display, choreographed to music at this venue.
