There could potentially be some very interesting fireworks in The Range this year.

That's interesting reading, they are exclusive, I'm wondering if there's gonna be re wraps of things available elsewhere as I've of the specialists I use has already got a lot of new Lesli items available for pre order on their site, and I don't think that's normally a mainline manufacturer for them :unsure:.

There some serious issues getting stock over from China for BFN, with many expecting to stock only 25% of their range, and several importers are looking at Europe to source any stock in time.

NYE is looking better tbh.

Some of these look absolutely fantastic, Fireworks Crazy have uploaded a load of these Lesli videos on their YouTube channel as they will be stocking them.
That's who I'm watching, there was one called Ghost Machine posted the other day which I loved. But managed to see further details other than the video yet as that one has yet to go online from what I've seen.

All the low noise stuff is class.. I think Lesli is better than bright star. I think I recall some Lesli fireworks on sale previously at Fireworks Crazy so that must have been the connection for importing that line possibly. If I recall correctly they had some novelty items, may have been a little tank that went backwards and forwards on the ground. This was 2-3 years ago

They did 'Full Force Thunder' which was 100 loud salutes, I think these went up in batches of 10 in quick succession, and also 'Turbo Tanker', again loud salutes, I think 100 in about 3 seconds of my memory serves me correctly (which it may not :LOL:) I had one in 2016 and the other in 2017.

Looks like JTF have been saved, at least some of their stores anyway.

I highly doubt they will sell fireworks, given who has purchased them but you never know..

I think they will sell fireworks again, maby not this year as it's a bit late with the stock issues but it's a big selling time of year for them but it's a 10 year lease so I guess the old people still own jtf once the lease is over if not extended? Not quite shaw how that bit works

Good news they are currently searching for a supplier for this year
And that's if they can get anything now, because, there's a national shortage of fireworks due to Brexit, the sky high costs of importing containers of them, necessary checks on them, and a shortage of logistics transport company lorry drivers to get them to the shops, read it in the Guardian and Independent newspapers today.

Wholesalers are reluctant to buy any fireworks, this year, because of the current difficulties in getting them

At a guess I would say the old owners would have had an order lined up with bright star that rolled over each year so they will probably be talking to them about continuing the stock they would have had ready for the old owners but if not at least it shows they should sell in the future or at least want to try
