The dates have been revealed for this year’s spectacular World Fireworks Championship Blackpool.

Three countries will participate over three nights in the autumn – Saturday 16 September, Saturday 30 September and Friday 20 October.

The stunning displays, which are set to music, will take place over the beach in front of The Blackpool Tower. All of them are free to access.

Over the years, the firework events have become one of the resort’s biggest draws. In 2022, each of the events attracted more than 50,000 spectators to the Tower Festival Headland.

 Details of this year’s competing countries will be announced over the coming months.

Cllr Lynn Williams, Leader of Blackpool Council, said: “World Fireworks Championship Blackpool is one of the most popular events in our autumn calendar.

“These are free family events and prove enormously popular with residents and visitors alike. We can’t wait to bring this magnificent spectacle back to the seafront later this year.”

The three displays form an integral part of Blackpool’s major events programme which this year will see the return of the two-day Air Show on August 12 and 13, Ride The Lights on August 29, the Illuminations Switch-On celebration on September 1, and Lightpool Festival from October 20-28.
