Congratulations to Blitz Fireworks - British Firework Champions 2014

After two nights of explosive competition in Plymouth, Bliitz Fireworks were crowned British Firework Champions 2014.

Hailing from Crewe in Cheshire, Blitz Fireworks are a relatively new company and this was their first time competing at the event. Their display was judged to have been the best on the first evening of the competition and held on to top spot ahead of Reaction Fireworks who were judged best on night two.

This year also saw the introduction of the Championship Award which focussed on an innovative aspect of each display and recognises the way each team advances the art of pyrotechnics. The award was won by Reaction Fireworks for their 3D Flower Display, a stunning innovation that brilliantly lives up to its billing.

During the second evening’s display there was a delay. Here’s Jim Winship, Director of The Event Services Association to explains. “The delay in Wednesday night’s British Firework Championships was caused by a sort circuit to the first of the three displays. The teams worked to rectify the fault quickly then cleared the firing site to enable the other two displays to be fired. They then returned, performed their final checks and rewarded the patient crowd with their display.”
