In Topic: Where to buy blackpowder from

Double checked with Ribbands and it's a no-no for BP. Their shell bursts looked cheap at £7 a bang but they have a minimum order of £250, way to much for my needs.


Never thought that obtaining BP in South East England would be so difficult.

Ribbans don't do black powder any more.


Dealt with SkyHigh FX in the past but they can be a bit hit and miss, they didn't even bother answering my last requests in 2012 by both email and telephone. Not reliable.


Awaiting replies from Phoenix and TPL Pyro, yet to contact Wells.


One final move might be HFM for pre-made effects.

Spoke to Essex yesterday and they sell it at £15+VAT per 500g tub, is this expensive? Seems so to me.


I have 500g empty tubs, just need someone to refill the tubs at a reasonable cost.


I will try the others on the list today.

Thanks Chaps!


I am really after someone based in Kent or Sussex but I will give these guys a go.

They all sound good but I was really looking for someone around Croydon / Beckenham but if I have to travel to Loughton or Chelmsford then so be it.

Will try Lidl at the weekend as it is the only time I can get there.

Thanks a lot.

And I am called Andy The Bomb because I make pryo-explosions for re-enactment displays.
