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.


Our years of experience combined with the latest CGI visualisation software help us create stunning celebrations. We've built a good relationship with some of the UK's leading manufacturers so we're always able to offer the best quality fireworks. Our design team will be happy to create a show to suit any budget, so do get in touch with a query.


Our past clients include the London Chinatown Chinese Association, Stockton International Riverside Festival, Sunderland Music, Arts & Culture Trust, and Harley Grove Gurdwara Sikh community Temple at Bow.


Going Out With A Bang!

Lightfires created a stunning celebration of the dangerous beauty of explosives. From the harsh impact of war to a colourful celebration of peace. Haunting vocals and sirens, powerful percussive bursts merge into playful chasing along the river. Calmness comes as the river is filled with delicate drifting fountains of sparks. Celebrate with us as bright bold colours erupt from the riverbank and bridge and we paint the sky with delicate stars. The show builds with dramatic pace and scale to a spectacular full-throttle finale. Design by Paul Bryce and Frank Earle-Whiffen.

Year of the Horse

Visualisation created for the closing act of Chinese New Year 2014 in Trafalgar Square. Music by Sean Canning.

mixing it up


We like to mix things up a bit. Fireflight by Periplum used different flame effects, smoke effects, stage and arena pyro, fireworks , CO2 effects and live performance.

fire sculpture

Fire drawings and sculptures are a great way to give a display or performance a unique selling point.

lightfires manufactures it's own fuel for creating these images. The chemistry of our fuels means these images create no debris or ash, and both smoke and drips are reduced to a minimum.

Virtually any image is possible, why not ask us.

Also have a look at our new fire laboratory experience dr. kronovator's fire laboratory.

Then there’s the fire garden – my personal favourite – which is filled with flaming stars that sound like rushing water as they burn bright. The blissful sound and deep red glow is incredibly relaxing (like a spa experience, but minus the towel robe). The smell of burning oil adds to the sensory delight.

Our confetti is a great effect for all sorts of occasions. Product launch, final of a sports season, commemoration or an arts event.
