British Firework Championships

8th August, 2018 - 9th August, 2018

The world famous British Firework Championships is set to return to Plymouth’s Waterfront next week! Each year, thousands of people attend this highly anticipated event, for those of you who may not have been before, here is an idea of what you can expect…

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 are offering an exclusive menu to celebrate the British Firework Championships. On 8th and 9th August, enjoy two courses in our Two AA Rosette Restaurant for just £15.95 per person before taking a leisurely walk up to Plymouth Hoe.

Roasted Tomato Soup with Semi Dried Cherry Tomatoes and Croutons

Bays Beer Battered Mackerel Scampi with Pickled Shallots, Watercress and Tartare Sauce

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.

If you would like to book a table for dinner in our Restaurant or are interested in an overnight stay, call our reception team on 01752 275850. We look forward to welcoming you.
