Each year, the beautiful town of Southport plays host to thousands of firework lovers as they descend on the area for this annual event.

The British Championships have been held in Southport since 1999 and they continue to grow year on year. Last year Sirotechnics won both the competition with a truly spectacular display and were the people’s choice winners too. This fiercely fought competition pits the best firers from around the country against each other, tasked with putting on a display with the following criteria:

• Competitors must submit their music selection before 1/6/14 which must be suitable for a general family audience. The music must be listed by the track, artiste and duration.
• The selection must include more than 4 tracks and less than 10.
• Display must be 16-18 minutes in total length.
• Competitors must have min £5 million Public Liability Insurance.
• Display must contain no more than 350kg NEC.
• Pyro selection must be authorised and classified by HSE.

As well as the above, the teams must supply the usual safety assessments, firing order and content list detailing the NEC.

This year’s firing order schedule has been recently changed and Solihull Fireworks replace F1 Pyrotechnics.
