Fireworks Experts Visit Southport Ahead Of Musical Fireworks Championship 2010

Preparations are underway for one of the most exciting fireworks events in the UK, the British Musical Fireworks Championships 2010.

SOME of the countries leading fireworks display experts have visited the town of Southport ahead of one of the most sensation events on the pyro calendar.

The competitors for 2010 includes Flashpoint Fireworks (who return to defend their 2009 title), Pendragon Fireworks, Anytime Fireworks, Pyro 2000, Pyrotex Fireworx, Ashdown Fireworks and Fantastic Fireworks (the 2008 champions).

The seven competitors have met the judges and brushed up on the rules and regulations of the competition. The judges will be as keen as ever and the rules must be strictly adhered to (bribes will not be accepted). There was also a tour of the firing site so the crews could begin making designs and planning for their displays in six months’ time.

To be staged at Kings Gardens between the 1st and 3rd October, the annual championships are being held in Southport for the 12th time. Many thousands of spectators are expected to attend the event which illuminates the skies of Southport at the start of October, just in time to whet our appetites for Guy Fawkes Night.

Sarah Carter, the events organiser for Sefton Council said: “Preparations are well underway for this year’s championships so we like to get the competitors in the resort as early as possible to ensure that they have the best opportunity to wow the crowds.

“There are a lot of things to consider when designing large fireworks displays and with Southport being one of the most prestigious events in the country everyone wants to make sure they are on top of their game.”

”Tickets are on sale now and can be bought at The Tourist Information Centre in Southport, Southport Arts Centre or by visiting www.visitsouthport.com. Advance tickets cost £4 on Friday/Sunday and £6 for Saturday. Priority tickets are also available priced at £15 for Friday/Sunday and £20 for Saturday.
