Now in its 14th year, right here at Stanford Hall – 4 great firework displays! Three of the UK’s best firework companies compete against each other with a 10 minute firework display choreographed to music followed by a finale display from organisers MLE Pyrotechnics. The types of fireworks being used by the companies are quite different to the material available to the general public, each company uses category 4 fireworks – those that are for professional use only and the biggest available in the UK.
The event is the only one of its type in the UK where the audience have the capability to vote for the team they liked the most using their mobile phone. Texts will be charged at normal rates and a limit of 1 vote per number is in place. Each voting number receives a text back with the results.
“A SMS system commissioned specifically for the event, will allow the audience to get involved and vote for their favourite team. Unique real time updates will be given where available by our announcer Russ McClean.” Trevor Golding, MLE
