The British Firework Championships were started in 1997 by The Event Services Association (TESA), a trade body representing the outdoor events industry in the UK.
The displays are fired from the Mountbatten breakwater and are designed to be seen from Citadel and The Hoe, which makes these areas the prime viewing areas.
With so many people visiting Plymouth for the event, the roads can easily become choked up with traffic, particularly at the end of the evening when everyone is trying to leave at the same time.
The first British Firework Championships were held in 1997 and last year brought a new twist with 1st Galaxy Fireworks taking the 2019 crown while Selstar Fireworks were named Champion of Champions. Take a look at the previous winners.
