The full line-up has been revealed for the 2022 British Musical Fireworks Championship in Southport!
The spectacular pyrotechnic event returns to Victoria Park in Southport from Friday 23rd September to Sunday 25th September.

The British Musical Fireworks Championship is a pyro musical competition. The fireworks are fired to the music and the show is choreographed to give visitors some of the most spectacular fireworks you will ever see.
During the competition, over two tonnes of explosive material are used with the total weight of fireworks over 10 tonnes!
Each show required around 5 kilometres of wire to connect the electrical circuits and around 15 technicians working for over 12 hours to set up the display.
The gates at Victoria Park open at 6pm each night and each display will be 15 minutes. Parking is available in Princes Park.
Friday and Sunday group standing tickets are from £7, Saturday group standing tickets start at £9, or you can enjoy a full weekend pass for £22. Children under 5 are FREE but do need an entrance ticket.
Remember to check your ticket as they are only valid for the night you have purchased.
