The Powder Keg - Fireworks

Welcome To The Powder Keg



Our 2021 brochure is packed full of new and exciting products, some of our suppliers have really upped the ante in terms of performance and effects.

Now for the not so nice news, many of you will have read about the shortages and price rises our industry faces, this is purely down to huge increases in shipping costs, the actual manufacturing costs for once have not risen, but with shipping costs up over 300% rises are unfortunately inevitable. We are lucky to be supplied by one of Europe’s biggest firework companies who held a huge amount of stock in Europe so we have been able to secure at least some stock.

So what else, our favourite supplier Funke being so small and niche have been pushed to the back of the queue so we will not receive their goods until early December.

Klasek have added some incredible new compounds into their pyro-technology range, the sheer performance of these items really does leave you speechless.

Other new items of note are Primed’s Big play, Flashy and Jack it up.

This year we have a specially commissioned new Barrage box, in memory of the late and best James Bond ever, Sir Sean Connery, based on a full house with added barrages this will become the most sought after barrage pack of 2021 we only have 100 so don’t delay in ordering yours.

Other items of special interest are two items we have added from a new supplier VIvid Sky candy and Kamuro rainbow, these are professional fireworks at the very top of the tree, very limited so again order early.


All that remains is to say as always is to stay safe & have fun!


Thank you
