British Musical Fireworks Championships Southport 2012
The British Pyromusical championships started with a BANG last night as the competition got underway.
The event sees seven of the best pyrotechnic teams in the UK battle it out to be the best in the UK in this much anticipated annual event.
Over three nights, teams compete to be the best by choreographing fireworks to music. Points are awarded for the music, the correlation between the pyro and the music and the timing. Over the three nights, two tonnes of explosive material will be used throughout the competition, which runs until tomorrow
Competing teams for 2012 are as follows:
• SALTAIRE FIREWORKS
• G-FORCE FIREWORKS
• KOMODO FIREWORKS
• HIGHLIGHT PYROTECHNICS
• BRITANNIA FIREWORKS
• PHENOMENAL FIREWORKS
• CELEBRATION FIREWORKS
Last year’s winners were Pyrotex who completely thrilled the crowd with a stunning display choreographed to the music from a number of different genres.
Last night’s show kicked off with Saltaire Fireworks and the initial reports were that Nessie was brilliant as a fire-breathing moving piece of art made its way across the lake.
