    First of the five MLE "Fireworks Champions" competitions and displays.
    3rd time at Newby 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.

  2. Could only find this old thread but wanted to say a huge congratulations to @AtomFireworks and a massive thanks to Magical, Cambridge and of course @MLE Pyrotechnics.

    The weather was a bit pants during the actual displays - I hope rigging and clearing up weren't too horrendous!
    The shows were all brilliant though, and we had a great time - so again, a massive thanks to all involved.

    [Top Tip for whoever does the parking: Instead of letting us in Row A and making us all wait to reverse in individually, let us in Row B and get us to drive straight up to Row A.
    Also, when it's time to leave, opening up the other side of the site as an exit might be quicker (?) but it means you have cars going all over the shop willy-nilly, not ideal when you've already got five cars trying to merge one way and half of them decide to give up and turn around, lol]
