Pains Fireworks is proud to be the longest established firework display company in the United Kingdom. History suggests that the barrels of gunpowder used in the infamous plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament were “manufactured by a gunpowder manufacturer within earshot of the Bells of Bow”. At that time the only such business was one John Pain, the founder of the modern day Pains Fireworks. Throughout the hundreds of years that followed, Pains set the benchmark for the fireworks industry in the UK and have evolved from the manufacturing of military pyrotechnics and shop fireworks to become solely focused on providing the best professional displays around the world.
