Events In The Future

If you want to see some incredible public displays, here is where to find us!

Bonfire Season



It may still be a way to go, but we're already planning our 2016 events!


Last year we provided our largest number of displays over the two week bonfire season, with displays ranging from large scale pyromusicals to smaller private events. You can see more details of these events on the Past Events page.


This year we're aiming for an even bigger and better season! We are already confirmed to be back at most of our 2015 venues, as well as a number of new locations with the planning stages under way, but we always have openings for new events. So if it's a display of any size, please get in touch through our Contact Us page with your requirements as soon as possible to see what Optimum can do for you!


We will be updating this page closer to Bonfire season with specific details of all our public events, so please check back closer to the time to find out where you can see us!

Keighley Gala


This year we will be firing a display to close the 2016 Keighley Gala.


In conjunction with Marshall's Amusements, who will be hosting the fairground rides, we will be providing a FREE display at dusk on the main parade day.


Held in Victoria Park, this is our local event, being only a 5 minute walk from our base! It is brilliant to be involved and we hope to see lots of people attending the event.

UK Power Pageant (Miss International, Intercontinental, Grand)


After providing our indoor pyrotechnics to the Miss Intercontinental and Miss International UK final for two tears, alongside the Miss Galaxy UK finals for three years, we have been invited back to the even larger 2016 event.


For this competition we provide both small and large fountains for the winners crowing and then photographic set pieces for after the competition.


We look forward to working with the team again at The Park Hall Hotel, Chorley, this coming July and good luck to all the girls competing!

15-17th July 2016

Beat Herder Musical Festival, Sawley


In 2015 we were asked to provide a large scale surprise display for the 10th anniversary of the Beat Herder Festival. This sold out three day event, held near Clitheroe in Lancashire, has a huge following with festival fans and has grown to a 12,000 strong crowd.


On the Saturday evening before the main act, we provided a 10 minute display featuring large caliber shells and a wide variety of effects. The display received amazing reviews not only from the crowd, but also from various newspaper and magazine articles, with The Mirror calling it "a jaw-dropping firework display that bathed the Sawley sky" and the Burnley Express stating it "looked like something from Apocalypse Now"!!

To view the display, please click HERE!


Alongside this firework display, we also provided large flame units on all three nights of the festival. These were situated on two of the main stages, The Fortress and Maison D'Etre.


After this 2015 success, we are happy to say we are returning for Beat Herder 2016! With fireworks, flames and lots of new surprises, the whole crew are looking forward to Herding Some Beats once again!





23rd July 2016

Firework Champions

Newby Hall, Ripon


After following up our 2014 win at Broughton Hall, Skipton, with a 2015 victory at Capesthorne Hall, Cheshire, this year we've been asked to compete once again but this time in the Newby Hall, Ripon event.


For anyone that has not attended any of these competitions before the event is a perfect night out with family, friends or even for corporate bookings. The evening will feature Optimum Fireworks competing against two other UK top firework companies, with each team providing a showcase 10 to 12 minute display choreographed to music. The event will also include a demonstration and explanation of professional fireworks and how they are used at the beginning of the evening, with the evening closing with a larger scale finale display by the competition organizers and good friends MLE Pyrotechnics.


The Newby Hall event is the first of six rounds to be held across the UK over the summer. The Firework Champions events are the only of its type in the UK where the audience choose the winner by voting for the team they enjoyed the most using their mobile phones. The results are then announced on the night after the closing display.


With gates opening early, there's plenty to do during the evening with food and drinks stalls, music (you can even send in requests and shout outs!), entertainment and interviews with the teams. There's also the opportunity to purchase Gazebo plots, although these sell out fast, and camping is also available before and after the night itself.


Were hoping to take our third win (and keep a 100% record) by wowing you all again with our display.
