British Firework Championships
August 14 - August 15
The British Firework Championships return to the city on 14th and 15th August. This fantastic two day event is an annual highlight amongst many locals as well as the large number of guests who travel to Plymouth for the weekend. Here is an idea of what you can expect for those of you who haven’t attended before…
The lights from the fair ground rides on the Hoe can be seen for miles around, creating an exciting atmosphere with lots of happy faces. The smell of candy floss and hot dogs fills the air, which coupled with live music from local bands gets the party started! As the night draws in, everyone is huddled around with coats zipped up, scarves and wooly hats on.
Small children sit on their parents shoulders to see over the crowds and ensure they have the best view of the fireworks! From previous years we know that the sky will light up with every colour and we love watching the reflection on the waters of the historic Plymouth Sound.
We think you’ll agree that this event is not to be missed! For full details, please click here to view the Visit Plymouth website.
For those of you wanting to make a weekend of it, why not book into the hotel where at the end of the night, a short walk will bring you back to the warmth and hospitality of the Duke. Enjoy a night cap in the Lounge with the fire roaring, a comfy bed and complementary breakfast the following morning. What better way to finish a spectacular evening.
