Fireworks Championships to light up skies over Newby Hall

Award-winning Newby Hall and Gardens is the setting for a night of dazzling pyrotechnics this bank holiday weekend.

The Fireworks Champions event takes place on Saturday (26th August) when three displays - choreographed to music and with accompanying laser displays – will light up the skies over Newby.

Three of the UK’s best fireworks companies compete in the event, each putting on a 10-minute display.

Visitors will vote using their mobile phones for the best display before organisers stage a grand fireworks finale to round off the evening.

Gates open at 4pm when visitors are encouraged to come along with friends and family and enjoy a picnic before a drone show at 8.50pm (weather permitting) and the start of the fireworks displays at 9.05pm.

Stuart Gill, commercial director at Newby Hall, said:

"The Fireworks Championships provides an evening of great entertainment with sensational displays by some of the UK’s best fireworks companies.

"It is a really enjoyable way to spend time with family and friends on a late summer’s evening.”

Advance tickets are £23 adult; £13 child; under 5s free. On the day tickets are £25 adult; £15 child.
