Firework displays have been an essential ingredient to major celebrations for hundreds of years, they remain as popular today as they have always been. The Merlin Team have substantial experience of presenting major displays at major National and International Events: National Days; Capital of Culture; Anniversaries; Opening and Closing Ceremonies; Sporting Championships: and religious celebrations such as Diwali and Eid al Fitr.

Technological advances permit larger and ever more complex and sophisticated displays. On 31st December 1999 Merlin were on the River Thames setting up and operating part of the United Kingdom’s biggest ever display for London’s Millennium Eve. Since then we have worked all over the World, in Europe, Canada, Africa and throughout the Middle East.

In 2014 we designed and fired a pyromusical display for the Jounieh International Festival. This display was fired from fifty positions spread around 6Km of the Bay of Jounieh in Lebanon.

Last New Years Eve saw our teams firing spectacular Musical displays in Gibraltar and in Nigeria as well as many of our regular UK displays.

If you are planning a major event and want that extra all sensory fantastic firework experience on a grand scale, then give Merlin a call to see how we can help.
