Firework Champions 2016 came to a spectacular conclusion last weekend with the final event of the summer at the beautiful Ragley Hall.
The guys from MLE Pyrotechnics – the organisers of Firework Champions – have been busy looking at potential new venues to add extra dates and locations next year, and have asked for suggestions on their Facebook page.
If there’s a venue near you that you think would be a great host for a Firework Champions event – particularly if this year’s six venues were difficult for you to get to – then head over to Facebook and let the guys know. 2017’s Firework Champions venues and participants will be announced before the end of the year, and we’ll be bringing you news and previews as soon as all the information for Firework Champions 2017 is available.
Firework Champions 2016 at Ragley Hall
For now, it is time to take a look at some of the displays that closed this year’s event.
MLE’s Closing Display
While the Firework Champions events are a great showcase for the pyrotechnic teams who take part in the competition itself, both the closing display from organisers MLE Pyrotechnics, as well as the pyromusical tutorial they put on at the start of the evening before the displays, have proven to be hugely popular with the crowds on each of the evenings.
Check out the below video of MLE’s closing display from Firework Champions Ragley Hall.
Team 3 on the night at Ragley Hall were Phenomenal Fireworks from Wigan. The team at Phenomenal were making their fourth consecutive appearance at Firework Champions, and wowed the crowds in attendance with the below display.
The Winning Display from Atom Fireworks
Atom Fireworks were making their debut at Firework Champions, and were also the first team to perform on the night. Any worries the team might have had about being first up on their first appearance quickly disappeared though, and they were the deserved winners on the night. Congratulations to the whole team at Atom Fireworks on producing the stunning display below.
