The second installation of this year’s Firework Champions will take place at Stanford Hall. Shakespeare’s Avon flows gently through the park, providing the perfect backdrop for the fireworks competition on July 29th.
Remember also that later this year, Firework Crazy will also try to repeat its win in the annual competition, this time at Eastnor Castle.
But let’s check out what to expect from Stanford Hall and how you can get involved with Firework Champions in 2017.
What Happens at Firework Champions 2017?
All six Firework Champions competitions will feature three competing teams, as well as a performance from the organising group MLE Pyrotechnics. Each competing group will create a 10-minute firework display by combining pyrotechnic wonders with music. Here’s a taster of what to expect from MLE Pyrotechnics:
During each competition, the audience gets to have their say on the winning performance. You can vote via text message and give your support to your favourite team. The team with the most votes will win the competition and get the bragging rights of being one of the winners of Firework Champions 2017. Your text will be charged at normal rate and you won’t be able to vote for your favourite team more than once.
Which Firing Teams are Performing at Stanford Hall?
As we mentioned at the start, the second Firework Champions 2017 competition will take place in Rugby, with the historic Stanford Hall as the backdrop. The Stanford Hall show will take place on the 29th July. Russ McLean will be the “voice” of the competition and the three participating teams are:
Skydazzle are a family-run group are seasoned professionals, providing entertainment in corporate and private events alike. The group has taken part in Firework Champions for three years and are famous for incorporating music with a stunning show, not just at Firework Champions but wherever they go.
Flashpoint Fireworks are the next participant, and are a team that are always popular with the Firework Champions crowds. The team is returning to Stanford Hall to compete in 2017 and you can expect a bright, noisy display to match anything you’ve seen before. The group knows how to put on a fantactic pyromusical show as good as anyone, having won the British Musical Championship back in 2009.
G-Force Fireworks is sure to enter the competition hungry. It has twice been the runner of in the British Fireworks Championship and the team will want to entertain the crowd at Stanford Hall to the full.
Following the demonstrations by the three teams, the closing display will be performed by MLE Pyrotechnics. The show will also be slightly longer than the other three displays.
