Dates of the heats
Friday 9th, 16th, 23rd, & 30th September 2011
The eyes of the world will be on Blackpool for this and competition will be fierce. Pyro – Musical has become an artform in and of itself, honing their skills, the competitors will hope to touch the audience emotionally and use the music and the fireworks harmoniously.
“Music and fireworks go together beautifully, when the timing is just right and the mood and feel of the musical piece matches the visual display in the sky, the audience responds and the whole becomes much greater than the sum of its parts. There is an acceptance of togetherness between spectator, music and pyrotechnic which can be overwhelming.” – Graeme Connelly, pyro musical aficionado.
Weekly heats will see the competitors vying for top space and the publics hearts. We hope you can make it there.
The recommended viewing area for the Blackpool Fireworks or the best place to see the fireworks is all the promenade areas North of the North Pier all the way to Gynn Square. If you know a good spot to watch the Blackpool Fireworks let us know and we will share it with the world.
