On Saturday 9th October 2013 at Hook Road Arena, West Ewell

Epsom fireworks display has one of the biggest fireworks in the area with a huge range of effects and has been running since 1971.

The Display this year is the largest we have ever fired. The planning for the fireworks ebgins months in advance , with the initial designs being discussed, changed then discussed and changed again! The final design was agreed in August and then construction could begin. It takes thousands of man hours to put the display together – we have a team of 15 people working on the show at various times in the months leading up to the display and there are over 100 helpers on the day of the display.

The show this year consists of:
· Over 500 Aerial Shells, from 3” to 12” monsters
· Nearly 250 Roman Candles, firing 8 to 10 shots each
· Over 30 Professional-use cakes, with up to 300 effects per cake
· Lots of other special effects that will ensure a big but balanced display.

The Display is part fired electronically and part fired by hand. This gives us the best of both worlds with the flexibility given by hand firing and the extra safety and timing precision given by the electrics. Overall we will have a show that lasts between 20 and 25 minutes, that includes around 15,000 individual effects.

Gates open at 5.30pm and we hope for the display to begin at 7.30pm.

Gates close at 10.30pm on Saturday.

7th Epsom Scouts work closely with emergency services, St Johns Ambulance and a Radio Team to ensure the safety of all the spectators.

Tickets can be purchased in advance of the display (before the 3rd November) from local ticket outlets,including Derbys on the Broadway, at only £5 per ticket! Or online at epsomfireworks.com
