Titanium Fireworks was born from a passion to deliver the best possible firework displays in the UK. In a very short time the company has grown into one of the largest fireworks display companies in the UK, most notably delivering both the London New Year’s Eve celebrations and Edinburgh’s Hogmanay at the end of 2013.
Prior to the formation of Titanium, the management team gained over 50 years’ experience in delivering many hundreds of fireworks displays, culminating in what is broadly agreed to be the triumph of the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games watched by a global audience.
As well as these major events the same team can be found throughout the year designing and firing corporate, local authority and private fireworks events across the UK, from product launches to ceremonies for village, town, city and schools, from November firework displays to weddings and birthday parties.
You can see the Titanium Fireworks display on Friday 26th September. This is a non competing display and tonight is the announcement of the winner of the Blackpool World Fireworks Championship.
Visitors arriving by car follow signs for south or central car parks.
Blackpool Illuminations are on into November this year, plenty of time to arrange a weekend break to enjoy the bracing sea air and a warm Blackpool welcome.
