    Blackpool Rockets

    This September, there'll be more to Blackpool Promenade than the world-famous illuminations.

    Each Friday, from the 11th September, the skies of Blackpool will be ignited with awe-inspiring firework displays as part of the annual World Firework Championships.

    The Blackpool seafront will host the best international pyrotechnic teams, who are to compete in an aerial extravaganza of light, music and explosions. The spectacle attracts and entertains thousands of visitors along the beachfront, and can be seen along the Fylde coast, with viewings reported as far away as Cleveleys.

    2014 saw competitors from Sweden, Austria and Canada battle it out across the skies to be crowned the Blackpool World Firework Champion, and this year will see Niagara-based Firemaster Productions, from Canada, defend their title.

    As a team who were involved in the opening ceremony production of the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010, Firemaster have set an extremely high standard by carefully choreographing their displays with contemporary and emotive music to truly wow an audience.

    Swedish entrants Linders Pyrotechnics and Lukasser Design Fireworks from Austria, will come out fighting, in a dynamic and dazzling match above the iconic skyline of Blackpool. With the experience and tradition behind Linders Pyrotechnics vying against Lukasser Production’s trademark epic, cinematic-scale productions, the Championship looks to be closely contested and will no doubt result in the delight and enjoyment of visitors to Blackpool and the surrounding areas.

    The festival of fireworks draws to a close on the 2nd October with non-competing UK based team, Titanium Fireworks, deploying a visually stunning and evocative exhibition of the premier bursts and flashes in the country.

    Titanium Fireworks are the brains behind the jaw-dropping New Year and Hogmanay celebrations in London and Edinburgh, and the stunning London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony, so spectators are guaranteed to see a very special show indeed.

  • Are you ready for bonfire night?

    Bonfire Night?

    Bonfire Night remains one of the UK’s most popular and enjoyable annual occasions, as families and friends gather together to enjoy a roasting bonfire, dazzling fireworks and delicious food. To make the occasion one to remember, get planning early for a trouble-free evening. See safety.

    Order your fireworks

    With a huge range of fireworks for every occasion, it’s possible to have the fantastic display in the privacy of your own garden, without needing to trudge to a public display with thousands of other people. Whether you fancy a selection of traditional favourites or a DIY fireworks kit for a display unlike any other, the Fireworks Shop has the full range of products to make your Guy Fawkes celebrations pass with a bang, as well as all the accessories you could need.

    Build a bonfire

    Building a bonfire is pretty straightforward, but it’s essential to construct it safely. Choose a position in your garden that is well away from overhanging trees, wooden fences and, of course, the fireworks site. Ensure, as you construct it, that loose materials are packed centrally and use rigid materials, such as wood, to line the outside in order to keep the shape of the bonfire. Autumn days can be damp, so cover the bonfire with thick plastic sheeting to keep it dry, rather than relying on accelerants to get it burning on the night.

    If you’re worried about wildlife, such as hedgehogs, crawling into the fire before it is lit, surround it with a double row of bricks or similar material to create an effective barrier.

    Prepare the pets

    Animals are notoriously unsettled by the sound of fireworks, so it's in their best interests to prepare them for several evenings of explosions, crackles and flashes. Obviously, all pets should be brought indoors during evenings when fireworks are likely to be set off in your neighbourhood, preferably placing them in a room well away from the garden. Draw the curtains and give your pet plenty of food, water and familiar toys or bedding – as well as plenty of reassurance and cuddles!

    If your pet is particularly prone to being easily scared, it's advisable to discuss the situation with your vet who may be able to recommend suitable options, such as plug-in pheromone dischargers or sensitisation CDs which can be beneficial and therapeutic.

    Prepare a buffet

    Guy Fawkes parties are a great opportunity to socialise with family and friends, so ordering in suitable food is perfect to make the occasion a really special one. A finger buffet is ideal, giving people the chance to select their own food, while finishing off some jacket potatoes in the embers of the bonfire is a tradition that simply cannot be missed!

    Plan ahead for your Bonfire Night party and you’ll be assured an evening to remember – so long as the rain holds off!
