BRITISH FIREWORKS CHAMPIONSHIPS

British Firework Championship

Wednesday 14 AugustThursday 15 August 2019

The British Fireworks Championships take place each year at the Hoe in Plymouth. This year's event takes place between the 14 & 15 August 2019, when some of the country's top fireworks display organisers will compete to be crowned the best. 

The championships have grown hugely since they started in 1997, and they are now recognised as the premier annual display in the UK.

Organisers will be hoping for dry, clear, windless evenings to ensure preparations go to plan. The hundreds of thousands of spectators will be hoping for clear skies so they get to enjoy the full spectacle of the event.
