World Firework Championship

Over the years, the World Fireworks Championship Blackpool has become one of the resort’s biggest draws.

For 2021, the event will take place with revised dates and a new launch-pad.

The stunning displays, which are set to music, will take place over the beach in front of The Blackpool Tower on alternate Saturday evenings starting on September 11 and continuing on September 25, October 9 and October 23.

The countries that will compete for the title in 2021 are Germany, Russia and Ireland, with the fourth Saturday a showcase event by one of Europe’s leading fireworks companies, Titanium.

Cllr Lynn Williams, Leader of Blackpool Council, said: “After more than a year of having to cancel and postpone shows and events, we are delighted to be able to announce that two of our biggest free events will go ahead over the coming months.

“These are free family events that are hugely popular with residents and visitors alike. We hope that by moving the fireworks to Saturdays it will give people more time to come into the centre of Blackpool during the daytime and enjoy some of the many other attractions on offer before watching the fireworks finale.”

Please note that due to the popularity of the World Fireworks Championship Blackpool, there may be traffic delays arriving and leaving the event.  Please take extra time to arrive and would suggest if travelling by car to park in the southern car parks and use the tramway to travel to the event.  Alternative public transport via the rail systems and buses are also recommended.

We look forward to seeing you at the World Fireworks Championship Blackpool 2021 for what promises to be another night of spectacular pyrotechnical displays.
