BACK WITH A BANG! – The World Fireworks Championships return to Blackpool!
This month sees the return of The World Fireworks Championships which take place in Blackpool between the 7th and 28th September, and much like last year when South Africa won, some of the world’s best pyrotechnic artists will be in town to light up the night sky in superb and spectacular fashion.
The best thing about this fantastic event on Friday nights throughout the month is that it’s free to attend! Simply take your place anywhere along the famous promenade. It truly is a family event and if last year was anything to go by, the kids – parents and grandparents too – will be in awe of the breathtaking spectacle overhead.
Where to watch
Head up the Promenade and make yourself comfortable, perhaps beside The Tower Headland. Make a night of it: sit back and see the entire resort up in lights – don’t forget you’ll also get to see the world-famous Blackpool Illuminations as well.
The first night on Friday 7th September is hosted by Pandora Pyrotechnie from France. Since its creation in 2007, Pandora Pyrotechnie has had a real passion for fireworks. The company has a national and international reputation in the design of premium entertainment, combining fire, music, light, and video, to provide a different view of the fireworks.
With new technologies, they are able to put together performances that reveal a genuine artistic approach with carefully orchestrated choreography that provides a unique sensory and emotional experience.
Expect a perfectly-synchronised soundtrack which will provide a stunning accompaniment to the jaw-dropping displays.
Build up will begin at 7.30pm and the show begins at approximately 8.30pm*.
