Tower Hamlets is seeking tenders for the artistic production of the Council’s Annual Fireworks Display to be held at Victoria Park at 19:00 on Sunday 3 November 2019 by a suitable creative firework company.
Tower Hamlets has a reputation for presenting creative fire spectacles to celebrate Fireworks Night as part of the Arts, Parks and Events team’s regular events programme.
The fireworks display will be artistically driven and the theme for 2019 will be the 50 Year Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing. Responses to this theme should combine strong visual and musical elements, appeal to a wide audience and be suitable for family audiences. The show will need to be in the region of 20 to 25 minutes in duration and at a suitable scale to entertain a large-scale audience of 90,000.
We would like the appointed bidder to work with the natural assets of the site to create a spectacle that is innovative in its use of pyrotechnics, special effects, bespoke audio soundscape, creative soundtrack and other creative arrangements to enhance the audience experience and create a truly memorable event. Please note that due to crowd density there is limited space for infrastructure outside of the firing zone and therefore we would not consider any installations or walk about activity in the audience arena.
The location of the spectacle will be Victoria Park East side directly adjacent to Grove Road, Tower Hamlets, E3.
To be considered for tender you must have relevant experience in the delivery of large scale creative fireworks spectacles for large scale events and have robust Health & Safety procedures and documentation in place. Any company not able to demonstrate this will not be eligible to apply.
