The show will be set to music featuring a variety of songs of different genres and times perfectly synced to the drama of the fireworks, their burst and impact.
This year sees a new sound provider and for the first time the industry renowned Funktion One sound system will be used at Audlem. This calibre of sound provision is usually found at major concerts or festivals such as Glastonbury.

The show is fired electronically via a laptop with state of the art world renowned 'fire-by-wire' firing system and it is the only digital firing system made and manufactured here in the UK.
