    Fireworks to End the Year in Style!
    Fireworks bring you joy no matter what age you are and there is a huge variety to choose from! You’ve got your barrages, Fireworksyou’ve stocked up on rockets and now it’s time to take your firework display to the next level! Catherine Wheels If you have a fair amount of space in your garden or venue and a post to mount them, then you have to pick up some wheels! They are perhaps the most mesmerising of fireworks, as they change colour and effect as they spin and occasionally screech round to keep you on your toes. They are both thrilling and inexpensive. You can pick up a pack of 5 Cyclone Wheels for as little as £5.99 or a mighty pack of 3 Reliant wheels for a bargain £12.99! Roman Candles The most important thing to remember with Roman candles is that they must go in the ground and that they are not to be held when setting off. Misconception about these fireworks has caused them to be banned in parts of the world. Roman candles are tubular fireworks that set off in layers giving you a succession of shots one after the other as the firework burns down. If you want a hefty candle to keep the display going then try V-E Day, which has 55 huge shots. If you’re just looking for a nice gap filler then we have Lunar or Dual Shock and for something more of a novelty, Atomiser which are a steal at £1.99! Continue reading →

Guy Fawkes The Gunpowder Plot is one of Britain’s most famous attempts on the life of a monarch. In 1605 a group of 13 Catholic men planned to kill King James I by blowing up the Houses of Parliament with him and many others inside. After being oppressed under the rule of Queen Elizabeth I English Catholics had had enough. Robert Catesby led the group who managed to acquire 36 barrels of gunpowder and plant them in the cellar of the House of Lords. Unfortunately for them, the group were betrayed and their plan was foiled. On the night between 4th and 5th November, the cellar was stormed and group member Guy Fawkes was found along with the gunpowder. He was then captured, tortured and finally executed. Was he framed?

  18. Chinese New Year 2016!

    Chinese New Year 2016!
    Chinese New Year is the biggest of all Chinese festivals and a public holiday in many parts of the world where there are Chinese communities. Celebrations often last for 15 days, but traditionally they would begin on the 23rd day of the 12th lunar month sm-31677-monkey-costume-jumpsuit-with-hoodand end on the 15th of the first lunar month. Modern society makes it much harder to hold such long festivities, but both New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day are always alive with celebrations. Monday 8th February 2016 will mark the year of the monkey. People born in this year are said to be generous and intelligent! While China adopted the Georgian calendar in 1911, traditions have always remained. After switching calendars “New Year” did not seem a fitting name for the celebration so it became known as Spring Festival. Continue reading →
