Why choose Starburst

A Starburst-produced fireworks display is a long-remembered emotional experience that titillates your senses: the "whoomp" of a shell shooting through the heavens flip-flopping your stomach with rushing butterflies; the sprays and splatters of colour and light filling your vision, the "booms and bangs" rocking your feet; the pulsation of power and force surging through your body, the gasps, "oohs" and "aahs" of sheer amazement.

Your audience will be spellbound by the sheer wonderment of a Starburst fireworks display. We are the leaders in the fireworks business in South Africa. We have been established since 1943 and put on more than 100 productions each year. We have fired displays on land, on sea, in the middle of a lake, from the tops of buildings and in indoor venues. We are one of the few companies that can provide a full indoor display and outdoor fireworks display choreographed to music.

Why Choose Starburst To Do Your Display?

No other company of our scale dedicates itself entirely to display fireworks. Our best sales tools are the opinions of those who have used our services. Some of those testimonials are attached and while they represent the quality of our work, they also provide us with the greatest reward - the pride of producing spectacular displays.

As direct importers, we have the advantage over our competitors in the quality and variety of fireworks we are able to provide. We do not rely on local distributors for our fireworks.

Every display is treated as a new challenge; we do not have set packages. Our approach is always flexible and friendly and you can be sure of our personal attention and an original display expertly designed to get the best for your audience from the budget and site available.

We consistently offer imagination and quality performances and at the same time our highest standard of professionalism and an acute awareness of safety requirements.
