What does Fireworks contain?

History and nostalgia feature in articles and the information you need to use fireworks.

Why was Fireworks started in 1982?

Although now a magazine covering every aspect of fireworks, one of its original aims was to ensure that old fireworks and firework memorabilia were not lost. Fireworks admirably continues that endeavour, publishing pages of colour pictures of fireworks that ensure that those who smelt the smoke before and during the forties, fifties, sixties, and seventies are able, again, to enjoy seeing the fireworks of the past, and younger enthusiasts to see what they missed!

You can download the authoritative Encyclopedic Dictionary of Pyrotechnics free of charge (see green banner above).

You can get NINE  issues of Fireworks FOR £4 by going to this eBay page.

Britain’s premier pyrotechnist praises Fireworks

In his book, Fireworks: Principles and Practice, Rev. Ronald Lancaster makes the following reference to Fireworks: 

‘I am grateful to… John Bennett, the Editor of the excellent U.K. magazine Fireworks. This magazine has done so much to encourage an interest in fireworks and to keep some of the history intact’.

Fireworks is not just a magazine.
