Review: The Fireworks Shop Bamber Bridge, Preston

Forget the supermarkets and the seasonal ‘pop-up’ shops when looking for your fireworks this November. I’ve found when looking for value for money and quality razzle dazzle there is really only one Preston shop worth going to.

It’s really a public service message as one of the biggest disappointments on bonfire night is buying fireworks that turn out to be rubbish. For the good stuff I would suggest the Fireworks Shop in Bamber Bridge and speak to Wayne.

Not just passionate about the fireworks he sells (and I can personally vouch for that) but is remarkably knowledgeable about all his stock down to the actual timings of the display for each firework collection.  You can even watch a display of your proposed purchase from a DVD collection to check the quality on the large screen TV in the shop. You can’t do that at Aldi.

This is the Fireworks Shop Unique Selling Point (USP), a great personal service, good advice tailored to your needs. I like the fact they point out some displays are unsuitable for smaller areas – don’t buy a display for your small back yard that needs a viewing distance of at least 25 meters for example. They even consider what kind of show your little ones would prefer. More pretty colours and less bangs?

The shop sells all kinds of quality rockets, selection boxes, sparklers, fountains and barrages (they use the terminology ‘cakes’ to describe these). They can put together DIY packages for any event and even deliver. Not just for November, the online shops sells all year round. When I spoke to Wayne I found out that fireworks can be lit 365 days a year. I did not know that.

Be aware that nearer bonfire night the shop tends to get packed out so try going a little earlier.
