World Fireworks Championship Blackpool

The World Fireworks Championship Blackpool 2018 will light up the skies above Blackpool once again from the 7th - 28th September 2018.

The event will gather together the crème de la crème of the world’s firework elite and promises a mouth-watering series of shows with jaw-dropping entertainment for all the family - a great opportunity for visitors to take an extended weekend break.

Top class teams from France, Romania and Canada will compete for the coveted title.

This year’s events take place every Friday from the 7th of September with Pandora Pyrotechnie from France kicking off on 7th of September, before the Romanian team, Pyro-Technic, take to the stage on 14th September and Firemaster from Canada compete on 21st September.

A brand-new winner will be crowned this year, after Fireworks for Africa from South Africa put on an incredible display to scoop the prize last year after seeing off competition from Poland and France.

The annual fireworks championship is free, and is among the most popular event in Blackpool’s exciting calendar, attracting tens of thousands of visitors to the Promenade each night.

The displays feature jaw-dropping pyrotechnics – synched to music – from some of the most talented and technically gifted pyrotechnic engineers in the world.

The winner will be announced during the exciting finale event on Friday 28th September which features a showcase from the UK’s very own Titanium Fireworks.

As with previous years, The Beach House Bar & Bistro will be providing Fireworks packages giving people a fantastic view and hospitality to watch the World Fireworks Championship each night.  Further information is available on these by calling 01253 749899.

In addition to the fantastic fireworks competition, anyone attending the event will be invited to stay on and enjoy the Blackpool Illuminations atmosphere at Lightpool, where there will be new projections for this year projected onto the front of the Blackpool Tower buildings.  Watch for free from the Comedy Carpet several times every night, with extra performances at weekends and over the October half-term.

All displays and start times are subject to suitable weather conditions.  Please allow for plenty of time to arrive at the event.  There are plenty of restaurants and eating establishments available on the promenade and in the town centre to enjoy before and after each display.

The fireworks will, as in previous years, will be fired from North Pier with build up from 7:30pm and shows starting at 8:30pm.
