Plymouth British Fireworks Championship

Where: Plymouth, Devon at the Hoe
When: Tuesday & Wednesday/Wednesday & Thursday in Mid August
Time: Entertainments from 6.30, fireworks from 9.30


Pyrotechnics enthusiasts head to Plymouth each year for the national championships to decide who makes the best fireworks. The competition is spread over two nights in mid August, with entertainments through the earlier part of the evening from 6.30 until it’s dark enough to see the rockets at their best at around 9.30. Members of the public can take part in the judging by voting for their favourite by text – winners are announced within 24 hours of the end of the contest.
