Welcome to POB's Pyro

"As a seasoned firework reviewer I have used my knowledge and experience to bring in only the best fireworks for value and entertainment, keeping prices down by specialising in online retail and local professional displays. But don't let the online-only presence mislead you: in addition to reviewing fireworks and putting on displays, I've also been a repeat customer of fireworks across the country and aim to bring a standard of customer service to you that I would expect for myself. If you have any queries at all I'm more than happy to help."

Our product and pricing

We ourselves prefer being customers to energy companies, broadband providers etc. etc. that treat their customers with honesty and respect. Therefore it is only right that we offer our own customers the best customer service we can to match our own high standards!

For example, we don't show the Recommended Retail Price (RRP) of a product as the RRP could be set by the manufacturer at £80 with a target selling price of £40, making it look like you're getting a product half price when in actually you're not - it's just the original price is set twice as high to show a fake reduction. We also don't do psychological pricing, i.e. £39.99, as this plays on peoples thoughts that it's £30 something instead of £40.

Finally we want you to be happy with the product you buy. For example we try and avoid products that have been "puffed up" with extra packaging to make the product look larger than it needs to be. Some fireworks, such as fanned fireworks, need to be larger for their angled tubes or for stability, but unfortunately there are some that are needlessly enlarged and will be outperformed by smaller products!


Returning customers

We highly value customers that return to us. That's why we offer 10% off for all returning customers that leave us and our product(s) a review.

Let us know if you've reviewed us and we'll send you your very own discount code.

  • "I recently got married and was looking for a small 5 minute display as a step over from the day to the evening celebration. Peter correlated a programme, sourced and supplied various types of fireworks. The results were outstanding, it brought oooh's and ahh's from my guest. I highly recommend Peter, professional throughout and at a price that didn't leave tears in my eyes."
