    Don't F1 get to defend their title?
  14. I thought that too, perhaps it's an option and not compulsory :)

    Do I recall someone mentioning a 'champion of champions' event in 2017? That'll be a corker if all the shows are of the same standard as F1's from last year - it absolutely blew me away!

  18. Hi, we are thinking of going to this event this year for the full three days. Can anybody answer these questions for us?

    1. Are the three days displays fired from the same location?
    2. What is it like to film from there?(and are we allowed to). IE Trees in the way clear areas, high points to see over the crowd, Distance from crowd to fireworks etc
    3. Can we set up a Gazebo, like they do at the fireworkchampions
    4. The best places to stay and visit while we are there

    Many Thanks if you can help

    I'm also interested to hear from people who have been previously.

    Local hotels, and places to visit while there. Tickets should be on sale soon as I contacted British Musical Fireworks Championship to find out the costs as i have never been before.
