What is the only thing better than a fireworks diplay with a few pals? How about an absolutely flaming massive display right in the heart of Blackpool? This is exactly what visitors are in store this month as we light the fuse on the World Fireworks Championships! Delivering enough cascading colours and great big bangs to satisfy any spectator, this year's event promises... well, fireworks?! And how! This is no set of sparklers in a cake tin; think big time, bold and breathtaking displays from some of the world's biggest firework experts. Sweden have already set the skies alight this month, while three other nations follow shortly. Austria's Lucasa Fireworks arrive on Friday the 12th, followed by Canada's Firemaster Productions on Friday 19th. But perhaps the most eagerly anticipated of all are dazzling British masters Titanium Fireworks. If that name doesn' light a touchpaper inside your head it probably should, because most of you will be familiar with their work already.To take just one example, it was Titanium's epic displays that lit up the opening ceremony at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games! (For more on the flagship British fireworks company and some dazzling photography, click here).
For anyone who loves a great firework display (and who on earth doesn't?) we couldn't think of a better excuse to hit Blackpool for a long weekend in September. Guests can soak up all the magic of a Friday display and still have the whole weekend ahead to sample other treats. We have rooms to suit every budget HERE.
