Challenge: To design stage effects for two outdoor concerts 'Prom at the Palace' and 'Pop at the Palace' and to create a firework celebration fit for the Queen.
Display: A variety of effects and pyrotechnics were designed to complement both concerts and synchronise with Handle's fireworks music and the pop music. The firework extravaganza was started by the Queen lighting a rocket, which travelled down the mall igniting the last Jubilee beacon. The display that followed included a spectacular array of effects including bespoke 30' catherine wheels outside Buckingham Palace and waterfalls from the palace roof. The display received outstanding accolades from the media.

Challenge: To design and implement the largest display set to music in Europe.
Display: Pyrovision have organised this display for eight years. Each year the display is different. Pyrovision specifically commission 'quiet' fireworks (e.g. UFOs, jumping cats and silver willow cakes) which aim to enhance rather than distract from the music. Approximately four tonnes of fireworks are sent into the sky to illuminate the castle and provide a memorable finale to this annual event.
