Malcolm Armstrong ( formerly of Theatrical Pyrotechnics, Kent) passed away yesterday ( 3rd December 2014) after a long illness.


He sold his interest in the business some while ago, It is now run from the same place and contact details by a new team, the business continues.


Keep mannequins and watermelons away from fireworks..they always get hurt..

I knew Malcolm very well - even have some of his theatrical pyro made between the time he left Astra and his opening of the Manston factory.

a sad loss to the industry


he spent most if not all his working life in the pyrotechnic industry


he was a fountain of knowledge on anything pyrotechnic and a great character, very helpful to me personally supplying various items

He did some wonderfully colourful explosive special effects over the decades, for many of my favourite movies. "Die Another Day", "Star Wars", " Judge Dredd", "Saving Private Ryan", "Harry Potter", and "Cliff Hanger" to name but a few.
He trained many to carry on in his absence as well. RIP Malcome.
