The British Firework Championships is one of Britain's most spectacular firework displays with two nights of dazzling pyrotechnics that will illuminate Plymouth Sound. Plymouth will remain home to the championships until 2029.

Jointly organised by The Event Services Association (TESA) and Plymouth City Council, the championships feature six top pyrotechnics companies with each putting on an awe-inspiring ten minute display over the waterfront as they battle it out to become the British Firework Champion.
