Since 1999, The World Fireworks Championships have set the North Pier Blackpool ablaze with thrilling entertainment for the whole family and have become a firm fixture in the resort’s calendar.

Join the thousands of people that flock to the promenade every Friday night throughout September to witness the most gifted fireworks engineers in the world show off their talents.

The aim of the competition is simple. The world’s firework elite go head-to-head and try to outshine their opponents with displays, choreographed perfectly to music, which reflect the culture and character of their respective nation.

Last year saw Canada claim their second successive title. See if they can scoop their hat-trick or whether there will be a new name on the trophy.

The competition has seen teams from Canada, France, Sweden, Australia, Croatia, China, Ireland and the UK all compete for the most coveted title in the fireworks industry.
