let the flames begin

Let The Flames Begin. lightfires has been creating bespoke images and events for over 12 years. Our effects have brought internationally acclaimed shows to audiences in their thousands and more delicate perhaps more surprising artistic uses of fire to smaller audiences. We can provide anything from a single effect to a piece of theatre, devise a whole pyro-animated performance, or craft a firework celebration to suit your needs.


Lightfires has fourteen years of experience handling explosives and flammables. Our core crew are all competent working with all categories of fireworks and pyrotechnics. As we've developed relationships with UK manufacturers, if we’re not able to buy off the shelf, we can get it made just for us.

 We enjoy the science behind the effects and like to bring together people with diverse skills from physics, chemistry, engineering and mathematics to creative arts people and projects. Our design team have built all sorts of flame systems, from very large walls of fire to very small handheld systems. We’ve built fail-safe explosive firing systems into theatre sets, costumes and even small stage props.

 We would normally expect to provide all of the following for all events we work on. Site visits, meeting with local authority officials, health and safety officers, production management etc. Preparation of method statement and risk assessment specific to the event. £5M Public Liability Insurance (£10M also available). CGI visualisation for client approval.

 Our core crew all hold a First Aid at Work certificate and City & Guilds BPA Level 2 Senior Firer. All our explosive drivers are ADR qualified.



We’re always willing to collaborate with other artists. So if you want to follow our passion for literally explosive art why not talk to us about your event.
