Dates revealed for Blackpool Fireworks Championship 2022

28 February 2022

The dates have been revealed for this year’s spectacular World Fireworks Championship Blackpool.

Three countries will participate over alternate Saturdays on September 17, October 1 and October 15.

The stunning displays, which are set to music, will take place over the beach in front of The Blackpool Tower. All of them are free to access.

Over the years, the firework events have become one of the resort’s biggest draws. Details of this year’s competing countries will be announced over the coming months.

Cllr Lynn Williams, Leader of Blackpool Council, said: “These are free family events that are hugely popular with residents and visitors alike.

“Moving the displays from Fridays to Saturdays proved hugely successful last year, giving people more time to come into the centre of Blackpool during the daytime and enjoy some of the many other attractions on offer before watching the firework displays.

“It’s a winning formula and we can’t wait to bring the sheer spectacle of the World Fireworks Championship Blackpool to the seafront this coming autumn.”

The three displays form an integral part of Blackpool’s major events programme which this year will see the return of the two-day Air Show on August 13 and 14, Ride The Lights on August 30, the Illuminations Switch-On concert on September 2, and Lightpool Festival from October 14-29.

VisitBlackpool has already announced an extended Illuminations season starting on Friday 2 September and running through to January 2, 2023.

Further information on all of the events will be released over the coming weeks. Check out the visitblackpool.com website for start times and more details.
