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.

Heritage Flame Ceremony

In September 2016 lightfires built the Heritage Flame for the Paralympic Heritage Flame Ceremony. The ceremony featured disabled and non-disabled performers and some of our most famous paralympic heroes including Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson and Kelly Gallagher. The flame travelled to Brazil, and ultimately lit the cauldron in the Olympic stadium and opened the games. 

The idea behind the ceremony - called the Seeds of Diversity - is the story of the first Games in 1948 and how they sowed the seeds of the paralympic movement around the world.
