Fireworks Champions 2016 at Stanford Hall

The second instalment of Firework Champions 2016 takes place at Stanford Hall, Rugby, this weekend. Last weekend saw the opening of Firework Champions 2016 at Newby Hall in Ripon, Yorkshire, and we’ll be looking at getting some video content up highlighting the fantastic displays in the coming weeks, hopefully having both a preview and review of each competition by the end of the summer.
Here’s everything you need to know about Saturday 30th July’s event.

Stanford Hall

Stanford Hall is just a short drive away from Rugby and is found in a beautiful location on the banks of the River Avon.
The gates for this event open at 5pm on Saturday, although if you’re planning to make a night of it and camp on-site you can arrive from 4pm.
At the time of publication, digital tickets were still available from the Firework Champions website, and you’ll save £2 on the price of a ticket if you pre-book, though you’re more than welcome to turn up and pay on the gate should this be easier for you to do.
If you’re planning on taking the kids along with you to Stanford Hall, you’ll find plenty to do prior to the show beginning, including a selection of fairground rides. There’s also a wide range of food and drink stalls available for you to grab something to eat.
Prior to the show, hosts MLE Pyrotechnics will be carrying out a demonstration showcasing how a pyromusical performance is put together. Following the final competition entry MLE Pyrotechnics will also be conducting their usual display.

Who’s Performing?
