Candles & Mines
Roman candles are a firm favourite and a great traditional firework that dates back to when fireworks were first invented. The roman candle is a long thin tube which contains multiple shots that fire one by one up into the sky. Some shots may be coloured stars, and others may be exploding bombettes that release their starbursting payload into the night sky. A battery is a series of roman candles that are fused together. Shot heights for our roman candles range from 5 metres up to 40 metres.
Mines are brilliant fireworks - they are wider and usually shorter tubes than roman candles, and act by projecting their contents into the air all at once. Many mines contain stars, and other contain special effects. The stars in star mines look like little black or grey balls of pyrotechnic composition, some of them the size of peas. They are ignited all at once and thrown into the air producing an awesome column of effects. Some mines start with a fountain before ejecting their contents.
