Tower of London : Beyond the deepening Shadows
A collaborative arts installation to commemorate the centenary of the end of the Great War.
Asked to find a way to burn 10,000 flames in the moat of the Tower of London each night over 9 days in November we developed with MIC in northern Spain a unique flame torch and supported the installation with technical services and a haze system

Beyond the deepening Shadows
To complete the ring of light around the Tower we also installed an LED array that simulated the colour of the torches around the inaccessible traitors gate.
The British Athletes return from Rio
We were asked to cover an audience across with red, white and blue confetti.
We launched 24 kilos of coloured paper confetti with compressed air cannons.
A brilliant illuminating flare lit up the Abbey ruins like a rising sun
The Great Fire 350 – commemorating the Great Fire of London
When asked by Artichoke to find a way to burn beautifully and safely, a wooden sculpture that was 170m long and contained over 15 tons of eucalyptus ply wood, on the River Thames in the heart of London, it was a challenge that required 3 months of research and development to find a solution that culminated in a narrative of flame and possibly one of the worlds most spectacular bonfires
Centenary of the Easter Uprising at Croke Park
We designed a daylight pyrotechnic show that was integrated into the narrative of this large performance event, with 100’s of volunteers and dancers on the pitch surrounded by pyrotechnics.
This project involved many technical challenges including the rapid setting out of the show at the end of a sporting event.
For the last 4 years we have finished this extraordinary concert at Glastonbury Abbey with a firework finale for Michael Eavis and Glastonbury Festivals Limited
East London Dance Event
Close proximity pyrotechnics and flame effects for a dance event beside the Millennium Dome
Working with Light artist Chris Levine and sound artist Marco Perry from the Eden i-Project we supplied pyrotechnic effects for a finale laser event
Liverpool Chinese New Year
We were approached by Liverpool council to produce debris free pyrotechnic and fire elements as an integrated part of an imaginative projection mapping show. The show was created by Illuminos at Liverpool’s China Gate, to celebrate the start of the Year of the Dog.
These effects were fired above the open streets from a rooftop and two mechanical lifts. We will be returning to The China Gate with Illuminos to celebrate the start of the Year of the Pig.
Farnborough International Airshow
Working with the Blades aerobatic display team we created a daylight pyro finale to their spectacular air display that spanned over 400m on both sides of the runway
Their Mortal Remains
We were asked to design and install a haze system for a laser and light show at the heart of the Victoria and Albert Museum. The show was part of a the hi profile exhibition celebrating the creativity of Pink Floyd.
What followed was a methodical research into finding a haze and filtration system that would run autonomously for 8 hours a day, 7 days a week, for 3 months, with out endangering some of the world’s greatest artefacts in neighbouring galleries
