Where to buy blackpowder from

20 May 2013 - 10:20 AM

Good Morning All!


I am having trouble sourcing a supplier in the South East, Kent and Sussex area, for blackpowder. I am involved in several re-enactment societies providing special effects and looking for somewhere to buy powder in bulk, perhaps 10kg loose at a time.


Has anyone got any suggestions? Some of my local gun shops either don't supply it or charge an absolute fortune for just half a kilo.

Blackpowder Storage

Good Afternoon!

I was wondering if anyone might have a blackpowder storage box for sale, ideally for 12 1/2kg plastic bottles. I would love to build one but I do not have the tools to do so properly.



Electronic Igniters

Hi Everyone!

I do pyrotechnical displays for re-enactment societies in the UK and I am looking for a source to buy some electronic igniters closer to where I live in South London.

I normally get them from Brighton Fireworks but I have to take a day off work just to travel down there to pick them so if there is somewhere closer like Surrey or Kent I would be happy.

Any ideas?



Suggestions Please

Does anyone know of a good place to get some fireworks from in South East London. I am organsing a bonfire night in a couple of weeks time and need to get some good fireworks with a budget of about £150.

Suggestions Please.
