Fireworks Feature Archive 1999-2009

When UKFR was updated, all of the features were brought across from the old site for your enjoyment and made free-to-access too! So, sit back and marvel at some of the UK’s finest fireworks displays from weddings up to massive public spectacles. These features stretch all the way back to the birth of UKFR so please forgive any dodgy or dated web design. You may also find some of the large video files have been taken off-line – we’ll be republishing these via YouTube in due course but you can still enjoy enthusiastic write-ups and amazing photography.
