Christchurch Fireworks Head Office
Otautahi-Christchurch is home to Firework Professionals‘ head office. While we also have technicians and a distribution centre in Auckland, our core staff are based in Christchurch. From administration services to our manufacturing plant, it’s the hub where all the pyrotechnic magic is made.
Firework shows for all occasions
Firework Professionals design and perform a large number of shows in Christchurch and Canterbury each year. The major displays we’ve designed are the ‘Treetech Guy Fawkes Fireworks Spectacular‘ on New Brighton pier and the ‘Sparks’ Hagley park concert where we synchronise the fireworks to the finale piece played live by the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra. (Anthony has written a short history of Sparks). Along with local speedway shows and other community events, our fireworks are a crucial part of winter events too.
Cantabrians can enjoy fireworks year round
Firework Professionals work all around the Canterbury region, designing and firing shows for public and private events. We also supply fireworks to technicians we’ve carefully trained up to run their own displays for local events. Having so many highly skilled pyrotechnic experts throughout Canterbury means many world-class fireworks shows occur all year round.
Special Effects and Confetti
Additionally, we are often called upon to provide special effects for local film and TV productions. These range from vehicle explosions and indoor effects for music videos, to one off art installations. As well we stock a wide range of confetti and streamer products for celebrations, awards nights, private parties and more, and with firework simulators for places where fireworks can’t be used.
If you’re planning an event or celebration talk to us about fireworks, special effects or confetti options. Fireworks shows can be surprisingly affordable, and we’re always happy to provide a no obligation quote for you.

“Thanks first of all for the best fireworks display I have seen off the pier. It was mind blowingly AWESOME! Massive congratulations to your team. I found at all times your team easy to work with and communication lines were always open.

“I wanted to express to Fireworks Professional, my and my organisation's gratitude for the professional and brilliant displays the team did for the both the Opening and Closing. While our traditional and contemporary entertainment performances were spectacular and well received by the audience it was the fireworks displays that were the talk of the country. Both were brilliant in every respect - timing & duration, mix of fireworks, the intensity. I was told even the seasoned overseas TV commentator said that of the many major ones he's witnessed around the world at major sporting and other celebratory events our were the best he's experienced - which says a lot. Thanks guys."

“Inside Out Productions recently produced the 175th Birthday Celebrations for Auckland City. As part of this Fireworks Professionals were selected to supply the 8 minute Harbour fireworks show. Fireworks Professionals were successful in a thorough tender process and were chosen on a variety of areas, product, value, design and safety.
We were extremely pleased with the end result. The show was well designed, captivating and a huge success for our clients. The product used was of a high standard and the systems in place gave me confidence that we had the necessary back up. Fireworks Professionals were very safety conscious, and the pyrotechnic staff’s safety was always paramount. All consents were granted without any problems or queries.
I would not hesitate to to recommend Anthony and his team and we look forward to working with them again in the future."
Rebecca, Inside Out Productions

Deborah, Private Wedding Display
“Thanks for a stunning 1812 Pyro display – just wow! Speechless as always to the story you tell through colour, pyro choice, musical interpretation and precision timing. But it is appreciated and noted! Thank you for all your efforts on site and in the pre planning and the lead up to the event."
