A Giant Leap celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing

Once again, we we're delighted to have won the tender to create this year's firework display for Tower Hamlets at Victoria Park, and this year our pyrotechnic team came up with a stella show to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing on the moon.

'A Giant Leap'  took our audience of 80,000+ on a multi-sensory journey with a feature-rich display accompanied by an eclectic mix of music tracks, as well as original music, to convey changing tempo and energy.

The show also featured another of our epic fire-drawings, designed by Peter Mountain, which have become a hugely popular part of our displays, as well as sound recordings from the Apollo 11 mission, along with some unexpected moments.

"We're really excited to be back at Victoria Park to put on another display in response to this year's creative brief.  This is a big show for a big audience so, once again, we've worked hard to create something epic, original and, hopefully, highly memorable." Nathan Jackson, Producer
