History of 1st Galaxy

In 1995 1st Galaxy Fireworks was created and we opened our first specialist firework store on Valley Road in Nottingham. The family had already been providing Professional Firework Displays since 1985 but had no formal Trading name. In July 1995 1st Galaxy was formally launched and from that tiny shop in Nottingham we have grown into one of the leading; all round firework and pyrotechnic specialists in the UK; and Nottingham’s premier Professional Display Company.

1st Galaxy Fireworks now import and distribute an exclusive range of Fireworks under the Brand Name “Britannia Fireworks” which is our own brand product, we also distribute other exceptional Brands such as Vulcan and Jorge from both Europe and China.

From day one our message to the consumer was “display fireworks for the public”, in other words we supplied larger more professional type fireworks for the more discerning customer. And although our advertising slogans have evolved over the years; the principal we grew up with still applies. We are a specialist that supplies high quality fireworks for everyone, we are true professionals in the business for the love of fireworks and from that love comes a drive to ensure we are always supplying the best.

We are different to your average high street supplier or supermarket and so are our products in so many ways. If you want high quality and brilliant value then come and try 1st Galaxy Fireworks.

Printed below are just a few of the recent comments made by our customers:


Such a beautiful display I’ve never seen before and I’m sure I won’t see again, cars were hooting for about 15 minutes or so-it was to me pure magic.

I feel that I must express my appreciation for the fireworks display put on in Nottingham for the millennium celebrations. From my house I had an excellent view of a pyrotechnic display from both near and far which is never to be forgotten.

E Fenwick printed in the Nottingham Evening Post

Just a quick note to say a big thank you for the spectacular display for the Corporate Event that was held at the Park on the 23rd of August 1998. Our clients thoroughly enjoyed themselves on the evening in question and thought the fireworks were “Out of this World”.

Tina Magdaleno American Adventure World

To say I was impressed is an understatement. I cannot stress how thrilled I was at the display and everyone from staff and public all said how excellent it was indeed better than anything we’ve ever staged before.
