Types of Display

We fire a wide range of displays for a variety of different events, including, weddings, parties, corporate events, product launches, national celebrations, private functions, festivals, concerts. Whatever the occasion, our team are experienced in all aspects of design and project management.

Pyromusical Displays

One of our specialities is Pyromusical Displays, which involves designing fireworks to accompany music. We are a team behind the country’s biggest annual display for London's New Year’s Eve event. Our design team have a record, which is second to none, in choreographing fireworks to music with split-second synchronisation using the latest digital firing technology, FireOne, which is also the preferred system used by Disney.

Bespoke Displays

All our displays are individually designed to meet your specific requirements and those of the venue, catering to all budgets. Whatever type of spectacle you would like, we are skilled at combining performances with the striking potential of custom lighting or large-scale projections. We use pyrotechnic special effects to give the audience a spectacular and unforgettable experience.

Unique Displays

We often get asked to deliver something unique or unusual, whether it be the world’s first multisensory firework display in London, the world’s smallest display in Legolands’s Miniland or a chase of fireworks racing a 300mph drag car art Santa Pod.

We have a creative team that can rise to any challenge and help add an extra dimension to your event. As a firework company, we know how vital the right fireworks are to set the mood for the perfect event, bonfire night, sporting event, party, wedding or special occasion.

Darryl Fleming
Director

Can trace his firework heritage back to 1986. As a trained surveyor Darryl’s feet are firmly on the ground but he is happiest when he is creating designs on or around iconic structures such as the Olympic Stadium, Big Ben and most recently The London Eye. Few would argue that Darryl continues to be a major influence in firework display design in the UK with a long list of credits to his name, most notably the designer and project manager of the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, and most recently, the opening ceremony of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

One of my proudest moments was the immense display we fired for the 50th anniversary of the Forth Road Bridge

Q&A with Darryl Fleming

Favourite career moment to date?

Pushing the button when HM the Queen declared the London 2012 Olympic Games open and the 20 second pyrotechnic sequence chased around the stadium signalling the successful culmination of 10 months of planning and preparation. It just got better and better after that.

What do you most enjoy about your Job?

The events industry is very diverse and fireworks are no different. No show is the same even when firing at the same venue. The best thing about what I do is the many places I have visited and worked at, often giving me unparalleled access that members of the public never normally get to visit. From climbing up the leg of the London Eye and standing on the crow’s nest of the hub, fixing pyrotechnics to Big Ben or Tower Bridge, firing from the monorail in front of the Atlantis Palm in Dubai or getting the best seat in the house stood on the gantry above the royal box for the Olympic and Paralympic Ceremonies. One thing is guaranteed that this job is far from boring or predictable.

What aspect of your job do you least enjoy?

The worst bit for me is the last hour before the show starts, especially on the larger more high profile displays like London’s New Year’s Eve which has a live audience of over 250,000 and a broadcast audience of over 13 million, there is no chance for error, a bad day at the office is not an option. There is so much that can go wrong, that is the nature of live events. The last hour waiting for show time can be excruciating with so many external factors which can affect the display, there was one occasion when I was about to fire a display and my computer suddenly died and the screen went blank, my face dropped and as I turned to see what had happened the client had unplugged my desk top to charge up his phone, his face was hilarious as he realised what he had done. We quickly started up again and no one was the wiser. The responsibility to deliver displays like The Olympics, Commonwealth Games and London’s New Years Eve is very intense, the anxiety and stress levels can be off the scale, but with it comes immense satisfaction and euphoria, as soon as the first thud of the lift from the first shell fires, the fear and anxiety disappear and are replaced with exhilaration and a huge surge of adrenalin.

Favourite Project to have worked on?

It would have to be the London 2012 Olympic Ceremonies; it does not get any bigger than the Olympic Games. The pressure is immense but when you get it right, so is the pay off. The best thing about working on this project was the fact that there were four ceremonies to deliver, with an opening and closing ceremony for both the Olympic and Paralympic Games. The best ceremony for me was the Olympic Closing, with the opening behind me the pressure was slightly lifted and the ability to relax and enjoy the show was easier. Overall the Olympics offered some amazing and unique opportunities, least of all the privilege to design and choreograph a live show with such names as The Arctic Monkey’s, Queen, The Who and Coldplay. It really was a once in a lifetime experience with some challenges which I have learnt a huge amount from and the memories will live on for many years to come.

Favourite photo from the Titanium Firework Portfolio?

One of my proudest moments was the immense display we fired for the 50th anniversary of the Forth Road Bridge, it is not often you get the chance to show off on such a huge structure, with nearly a 2 kilometre frontage, the display itself was the biggest display fired in the country since the millennium. Apart from the amazing image below which is my favourite, this display was a culmination of a lifetimes work to be given the opportunity and trust to deliver such a prestigious display, and more importantly it was gratifying that it was all our own work.

How would your colleagues describe working with you?

I wish his dictionary included the phrase – “sorry that just isn’t possible”.

What is one thing you absolutely will check off your “bucket” list?

I would like to complete my private pilot’s license. Flying was my first obsession and the experience of flying solo is one that is both liberating and exciting. I have flown solo in a glider many years ago, but I would like to achieve my PPL so that I can renew my early passion.

If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go and why?

South Africa, visit Cape Town again and travel the garden route. I have only been to South Africa once for my honeymoon and we only stayed in Cape Town for 3 days, then a Safari and finally a beach holiday. We promised each other that we will go back again and take our two boys to experience table mountain the hard way by climbing up it again!

Toby Alloway
Director

Fired his first professional show in 1999 and has successfully combined his love of music and fireworks ever since. Toby designed the Tower Bridge displays and managed the firing locations within the Olympic Park during London 2012. Most recently he designed Edinburgh’s Hogmanay and the display on the River Clyde for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. A self-confessed perfectionist he has become the simulation software guru in the team.

I love this photo of the opening barrage of the display we did for the 500th Anniversary celebrations at Hampton Court Palace

Q&A with Toby Alloway

Favourite career moment to date?

It’s so hard to single one out– there are some shows we do annually which I always love, such as the Trinity Cambridge May Ball, which heralds the start of the busy summer season through to our New Year shows in London and Edinburgh which, for us, mark the culmination of our year’s work. One of my one-off favourites though has to be a large wedding display we fired across 500 metres of a frozen lake in Switzerland. The reflections in the snow and echoes from the surrounding mountains heightened the experience beyond any show I’d witnessed before.

What do you most enjoy about your Job?

Having the opportunity to fire some once in a lifetime displays in such a range of incredible locations.

What aspect of your job do you least enjoy?

Behind every exciting display there is a large amount of rather less exciting paperwork. It’s all a necessary part of the process of putting on any safe and spectacular event but it can become mundane unless you mix up your day’s work with other more exciting creative tasks.

Most unusual Project to have worked on?

The events industry as a whole was hit really hard by the pandemic, but we were incredibly fortunate to still have the New Year’s Eve display in London, albeit on a different scale to usual and created purely for TV audiences at home.

Planning these shows at locations around London, including Tower Bridge, Wembley the O2 and Greenwich Royal Naval College was a real challenge but simultaneously thrilling. Everyone involved understood that the shows, including fireworks, lighting, music and drones could only go ahead if the locations remained top secret.

Favourite photo from the Titanium Fireworks Portfolio?

It’s over a decade ago now but I have a large canvas print on my office wall of the display we fired from Tower Bridge during the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics. It perfectly captures both the wall of mines erupting from the Upper Walkway and the waterfall tumbling from the bascules which appeared as David Beckham shot underneath the bridge in a speedboat carrying the Olympic Flame. The photo was also taken by my father which makes it extra special.

How would your colleagues describe working with you?

A reassuringly complex experience

What is one thing you absolutely will check off your “bucket” list?

Being brought up near the Wimbledon Tennis Club I have always wished I could play the game properly. I took a few lessons at school but music always took precedence. I’ve only recently started playing again now that my son is taking a keen interest. I’m determined that this will be my chance to finally learn properly!

If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go and why?

I’d love to go back to the Grand Canyon. My wife and I went there for a few days in 2012 but weren’t prepared for the scale of it (naive I know). When we left we said we would have to return in the future for at least a week to properly venture inside it. I’m used to man-made wonders but the Canyon is one of those places where you realise that humans can’t compete with nature.

One of your proudest moments?

At 11 minutes past midnight on 1st January 2014 we had just simultaneously fired the two largest displays in the UK (London and Edinburgh), only 7 months after forming Titanium Fireworks. It was quite a feat to have scaled the company up from nothing in that timeframe to pull that off!

Rachel Clapp
Production Manager

Rachel is our Production Manager, and she has been with Titanium fireworks for 5 years. She started in the summer of 2019 as a production assistant after taking some time off to travel around America. And got promoted to Production manager in 2020 and I love managing our team over the years. Rachel’s history with fireworks is working for 7 years selling retail fireworks at a previous job and visiting her local firework display every year.

Rachel has always been interested in the display side of fireworks and wondering how it was all planned and set it. So for her to now be involved with firing London New Year for 4 years now also been a firer for Liverpool victory parade, Blackpool firework championships, Santa pod events, Butlins and many others.

As much as Rachel loves being involved in the bigger shows I do also love being a part of a couple’s wedding and being a part of their big day. The great thing about overseeing the whole process of prepping to loading to setting up to firing a show is certainly the cheer at the end of firing.
