The britsh fireworks championships 2017 promises to be a fantastic spectacle, and the British Fireworks Championships 2017 is just a week away. It is an amazing spectacle of lights and creativity for all the family to enjoy on what will hopefully be a warm summer’s evening.
This year’s championships will be held on August 9 – 10, 2017. The displays will be fired from the Mountbatten breakwater, while the main vantage and gathering points will be on the Plymouth Hoe. Visitors are advised to arrive early to get the best possible vantage points. Last year, the displays started at 9.30pm each evening as dusk fell.
The competitors for this year’s competition have been announced, featuring event companies from all across the UK:

With the displays being fired from the Mountbatten breakwater, the prime locations to view the event will be either from the Citadel or on the Hoe. The Queen Anne’s Battery area, which overlooks the firing site, is another popular viewing point as is the Jennycliff area behind Mountbatten.
According to the organisers, Plymouth was chosen as the event’s favoured location as it provided a ‘natural amphitheatre where large scale pyrotechnics could be used safely and watched from a variety of points around the harbour and Sound’.
On both evenings, the Hoe will be taken over by a brilliant funfair, while Heart FM and a number of local bands will be providing live music on the big stage.
If you’re lucky enough to own a yacht or some form of other craft, you are also welcome to watch the proceedings from Plymouth Sound.
There will also be plenty of food and catering services on the Hoe and nearby Madeira Road.
