what kind of insurance would i need to fire

30 January 2011 - 01:24 PM

My cousin is having a wedding this year and she'd like some fireworks there. She isn't the richest person in the world though so i think a professional display will be out of her budget. so she's asked my advise as to wether or not we could put on a display with shop bought ones. Thing is I don't really know if i'd be allowed to do this? the majority of the people there would be family obviously but there will be people there that i dont know so my question is what insurance covers me or what insurance would i need to take into consideration putting on a display with shop bought fireworks at a venue where we've gained permission to fire?
sorry if that doesnt make sense lol

are you going to...

water proof your fireworks?
I'm wanting to have my display on a set date this year come hell or high water so have just finished wrapping all that i've bought.
Does anyone else waterproof their own fireworks? how do you do it if you do?
I wrapped mine with a mix of clear cellophane, cling film and parcel tape. Didn't take me as long as i thought it would only a couple of hours from start to finish :)

Sorry for the amount of "my first this" and "my first that" but figured i'd share my progress with you all :)
After a couple of weeks of reading and a couple of helping hands in the name of Paul (pyromaniac303) and Dean (portfire) (thanks guys...) I've swallowed the nerves and made my first fountain.
Here it is:

hope you like :)

Right. so i want to make a fireball (don't really know why just think it'd be cool) I've searched the forums and it's brought up some fruit.
took a deep breath and made my first batch of gunpowder. (don't have a ball mill yet so sellotaped it to a fan LOL!! and left it rolling for a bit in my shed) realise this is not ideal but it worked quite well. The burn rate is pretty good and it doesn't burn through paper when lit.
The problem I have now is making the fireball.
I've tried:
1) putting 2 teaspoons of BP in the bottom then a tissue barrier and filling with coffee creamer. This resulted in a bang and coffee creamer all over my garden.
2) putting one teaspoon of BP in the bottom then a tissue barrier then filling with coffee creamer. This resulted in a puff and coffee creamer all around the tube (again in my garden)
3) putting 2 teaspoons of BP in the bottom then pouring coffee creamer on top. This resulted in a flame coming out the top throwing a bit of coffee creamer around my garden.

Garden now looks like it's been snowing :lol: :lol:
Any tips?
