DRONE FIREWORKS OVER BLACKPOOL

The following video footage was sent to us by one of our customers; David Ireland. The video was shot in Blackpool during an Epic Fireworks display for his family and friends.

Filmed on a DJI PHANTOM 4 Drone, which in the world of helicopter drones is billed as DJI’s smartest flying camera ever. Quite the bold statement but given the quality of the footage, there is not much room for doubt.

Capturing the very essence of the fireworks, the footage is not in amongst the display so no chance of spoiling it for the spectators but gives a fantastic eagle-eyed view (or as it is clearly dark, perhaps a bat’s view!) of the display and the colours seem ever more vibrant.

The display was for family and friends and it is lovely to see the colours and effects of our products from a sky view over this iconic West Coast town.

BLACKPOOL WORLD FIREWORK CHAMPIONSHIPS 2018

WHAT: BLACKPOOL WORLD FIREWORK CHAMPIONSHIP
WHEN: 7TH, 14TH, 21ST AND 28TH SEPTEMBER 2018
WHERE: NORTH PIER, BLACKPOOL, LANCASHIRE, UK
WHY: INTERNATIONAL PYROTECHNIC COMPETITION
COST: FREE

2018 marks the 20th Blackpool World Firework Championships event offering visitors to the Town of Blackpool the opportunity to see some of the greatest exponents of the field of pyrotechnics doing their stuff on the iconic North Pier for FREE!!

Organised by Titanium Fireworks and the Local Authorities, the event brings international teams over to entertain the crowds who gather for the annual firework event and of course the incredible Blackpool Illuminations.

The Illuminations have been part of the Autumn calendar for Blackpool since 1879 and were aptly described as artificial sunshine due to the un-natural brilliance at this time of the year. I recall going to see them for the first time as a child (a very long time ago now … 19721!) they were captivating and I walked into more people than enough as my eyes were directed upwards in awe at the fascinating lights and characters.

This free light show shines non-stop each night for 66 nights, featuring 100 miles of festooned lights along the staggering 6 mile stretch of the seafront of Blackpool and attracts an incredible 3 million visitors annually.

The competition will take place over 3 consecutive Friday’s on the 7th, 14th and 21st September and then on the final night, the Brits will take centre stage on 28th under the tutelage of Titanium Fireworks before the winning international team is announced.

A perfect weekend break for families and couples alike this is a must do for your bucket list. There is always lots to do whatever the weather and the people are friendly (of course, they will be, they are Northerners!). The choice of food ranges from the usual High Street offerings of Nando’s to family-friendly local Italian restaurants, many of which offer ‘early bird’ discounts which are brilliant for children if you need them to eat earlier.

We will bring you details of this year’s competitors as soon as they become available but last year, the team from South Africa imaginatively called ‘Fireworks for South Africa’ beat off the best from Poland and France to pick the top spot.

We will bring you this year’s runners and riders so to speak as soon as they are available.
