he meant LEWES! biggest bonfire celebrations in the country:D we march through the streets with flaming torches build tableus and effigies of people/happenings and then blow them all up with firewoks and a good old firework display at the end of the evening! 5 main societys really all relatively in 'competition' with each other. also too many members of the public come already! there has been 80,000 people there a couple of years.

He means Lewes, East Sussex. The Rainbow pub is at the top of school hill and a little way along on the same side as the old law courts. If anyone goes, expect to share the pavements with around 50, 000 other punters.

What time will you be there Skywalker?

The traffic light uses a label from the firework museum - the rest my own design

This is my tribute to one of the 'tree' set pieces in the Weingart book - it's about 4 feet from top to bottom. Remains to be seen if the 7 gerbs and 2 double saxons all light at once!

Yes. A quaint little fishing village called Newhaven. (If you've ever been there you'll know that's a complete lie.)

PM me nearer the time as this is a bit off topic, and with my memory I'll no doubt forget to contact you.

Those are real works of art. Fantastic construction. Almost a shame to set them off :) Can you take any pics as they are fired?

Thanks Rip Rap!

Yes, will see if I can get some pics on the 5th...

Think it makes them look more pro than just plain tubes. Does not take all that long either - compared with the actual making! Mostly done in Adobe Pagemaker, but any graphics program could make some nice labels I'm sure.

Wonderful items you've got there Phil - a real inspiration! Thanks for posting them.

The satisfaction of looking at a finished device can clearly be multiplied by spending a little extra time on the decoration. I think I'll have to see about doing that myself in the future!

Would love to see some action shots of them if possible.

Yes, really impressive, video please.

I'm doing mine now and appreciate the time and work it takes, nothing as elaborate as that though!

Phil those are mighty fine items, my favourite is the tree of gerbs and saxons. That's how a proper firework should look, noy some Japanese inspired sci fi labels from China. I hope they do exactly what you want them to.
