This competition is billed as one of the largest and fiercely fought events in the fireworks calendar. Whether this is true or not doesn’t detract from the fact that the competition within the industry is and remains and important part of the progression and honing of the art that is pyromusical.
We would, of course, like to wish Jubilee Fireworks the very best of luck on 22nd February and we will all be cheering you on from the UK.
