Our Story

Five years ago, a Scot and a South African joined forces to start a vibrant events and marketing agency named Firecracker.

Claire and Nicola met 7 years ago and realised they shared a star sign, a good sense of humor and the business acumen required to start a successful company.
Drawing from decades of experience working across the globe in marketing and events,  Firecracker was launched in 2012 and hit the national market with a bang.

To this day, Firecracker enjoys partnerships with both local and international clients, remaining true to company values, brilliant client service and delivering high quality work.
