BRITISH FIREWORK CHAMPIONSHIPS 2022
WHAT: THE BRITISH FIREWORKS CHAMPIONSHIPS
WHEN: TUESDAY 17th & WEDNESDAY 18th AUGUST 2022
WHERE: PLYMOUTH HOE, THE PROMENADE, PLYMOUTH, PL1 2LR
WHY: BRITISH FIREWORK COMPETITION
It started back in 1997, where each year, 6 professional firework companies take part in the British Firework Championships - and it's back for 2022.
Tens of thousands of visitors attend each evening to witness the beauty and spectacle of the fireworks bursting over the stunning setting of Plymouth Hoe. The area is stunning, with the firing site in the middle of a natural amphitheater.
You can either join in all the fun of the fair or listen to the rousing sounds of Heart FM or conversely, just park yourself overlooking the Plymouth Hoe with your picnic basket and watch the ships and pleasure craft bobbing about in the water whilst the world goes gently by.
The competition brings together some of the best exponents of the professional firework industry going head to head in the skies over the beautiful setting in Plymouth. Fun thrill rides, live music, and great food and drink concessions galore – a great evening out under the setting sun – what could be better.
