British Fireworks Championships 2017

Beat the traffic jams, forget about parking problems and travel in style on our historic Routemaster bus directly to the heart of Plymouth. 

The British Firework Championships return to Plymouth for two days in August with six of the country's top pyrotechnics companies battling for prizes. 

This spectacular event will be held on Plymouth Hoe on Wednesday 9th August and Thursday 10th August. The displays start at 9:30pm and will see four tonnes of fireworks literally going up in smoke. 

Companies taking part this year are AJ Pyrotechnics, Dragon Fireworks, Nemisis Pyrotechnics, Selstar Fireworks, Smart Pyrotechnics and The UK Firework & Events Company.

Our Routemaster bus will drop you off in the heart of Plymouth - a short walk from the Hoe. You will arrive in time to enjoy the pre-competition entertainment each evening.
