2018 British Firework Championship

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.


As the Hoe is the focal point for watching the Championships, entertainment is provided here throughout both evenings.

In addition to a fun fair, with thrill rides, Heart FM will be providing live music on a stage.

Alternatively you can just sit and watch the comings and goings of yachts and other craft on Plymouth Sound.  


Catering facilities are provided on the Hoe and along Madeira Road from early evening on both nights.

  • Date:  8th - 9th August, 2018

  • Time:  Evening from 9:30pm
