About

The British Musical Fireworks Championship is a firework competition across three nights, seven competitors battle it out to be crowned the ultimate winner.

Set in the beautiful Victoria Park, the British Musical Fireworks Championship presents firework displays like no other. Over three nights prepare for breathtaking displays, an array of light and a mixture of music which will have you dancing away.

The British Musical Fireworks Championship is a pyromusical competition. This means that the fireworks are to with the music and the entire show is choreographed to give you, the audience, some of the most spectacular fireworks you will ever see.

Over three nights, we had seven compeititors bring 16 -18 minute displays each. Friday and Sunday had two displays and Saturday had three displays. A panel of professional judges, who collectively have designed shows for high profile stars such as; Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart, Tina Turner and Queen judged each display before announcing the winner on the Sunday evening.

This year, seven previous winners went head to head to be crowned the ultimate 'Champion of Champions'​​​​​​. Sirotechnics Fireworks took the ultimate crown with their stunning display and creative lancework, including life-sized zombies during a Michael Jackson song! In second place was Bright Sparks Fireworks who impressed the judges so much they were only one point behind the winners. And third place was awarded to our competition regulars All Star Fireworks.

During the competition, over two tonnes of explosive material were used with the total weight of fireworks used in excess of 10 tonnes! Each show required around 5 kilometres of wire to connect up the electrical circuits and around 15 technicians working for over 12 hours to set up the display. All of this ensured the very best and most entertaining firework displays on each night!
