British Firework Championships
The British Firework Championships return to Plymouth 8th & 9th August
The British Firework Championships were started in 1997 by The Event Services Association (TESA), a trade body representing the outdoor events industry in the UK.
The Championships have grown hugely and are now recognised as the premier annual display in the UK, attracting 10s of thousands to the City each August.
Each year six professional display companies are selected by draw to take part – three on each evening of the event -and every sixth year there is a Champions event when winners from the previous five years (plus the previous Champion-of-Champions winner) return to battle it out for the overall title Champion-of-Champions.
As the Hoe is the focal point for watching the Championships, entertainment is provided here throughout both evenings.
In addition to a fun fair, with thrill rides, Heart FM will be providing live music on a stage.
