In recent years, our portfolio of display projects outside the UK has expanded. We manage the complex logistics involved in staging fireworks shows in different parts of the world, often with the assistance of one or more partner companies in Europe or The Far East.
Our debut on the international stage was in 2001 when we were invited to represent the UK in the 13th International Display Competition held in Macau. Since then, we have established a reputation for staging innovative and spectacular shows throughout the world – representing the UK at a number of high-profile events and being awarded 1st place in many distinguished international competitions.
These high-profile events test not only the design skills, but also the operational management capabilities of the elite teams representing their home nation – and are intended to showcase the very best examples of the art of pyrotechnics that each country has to offer.
In 2015, Jubilee Fireworks were invited to represent the UK at the most prestigious L’International des Feux Loto-Québec competition in Montreal. Not only were we awarded the 1st place Gold Jupiter award, we are the first fireworks company in the history of the competition, to be the first to fire and win.

As a general guide, the minimum budget for a display outside the UK is in the region of £10,000 (Sterling) – and in most cases freight and accommodation costs will be extra to this.
