|Where:||Plymouth, Devon at the Hoe|
|When:||Tuesday & Wednesday 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.
In 2016 it was on Tuesday 16th & Wednesday 17th August – 2017 date is yet to be confirmed but will probably be 15th & 16th.
