July 2007

In August, The St Mary Fireworks Factory of Mquabba is one of the exponents of the pyrotechnic art to provide a display at Rome's prestigious Caput Lucis (Campionato Mondiale di Fuochi d'Artificio d'Autore) - 1st - 5th August.

The factory (part of the Society of Saint Mary & King George V Band Club) was founded in the early 1900's, but its present fireworks complex was not acquired until 1960. It is considered by many to be the leading Maltese firework producer

The Factory has been commissioned to fire numerous and various displays and regularly provide aerial and ground fireworks in various Maltese towns. One of the most prestigious shows organised by the St. Mary Fireworks Factory of Mqabba was in November 2005 when it was commissioned to provide a fireworks display synchronized to music at the end of the banquet given by HRH Queen Elizabeth II on the occasion of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM).

In June 2005, the St. Mary Fireworks Factory was commissioned to electronically fire a ground firework display as part of the 25th Anniversary of the European Federation of Carnival Cities (FECC) in Nadur Gozo.

St. Mary's has been one of the main participants since its inception of the Malta Fireworks Festival and were overall winners of the first event in 2006. In December 2006, they provided two spectacular firework displays at the Grand Harbour as part of events organized in the occasion of the conference for Thomas Cook Travel Managers.

The Saint Mary Fireworks Complex reports that it 'always focuses on creativity and on innovations in its displays. It has also been a pioneer, continuously developing displays to international standards and was the first fireworks complex in Malta to synchronize its aerial displays to music. The main event for the Saint Mary Fireworks Factory of Mqabba remains the Eve of the Feast of Saint Mary organized annually on the 14th August.
