Sparks flew at Ragley Hall on 1st September as firework teams from across the country battled to put on the best display.

Three professional teams took part in the Firework Champions event, the third of its kind to take place a Ragley Hall.

Around 5,000 people turned up to watch a ten minute display by each team, before voting via text for the winner.

This year Cambridge Fireworks were crowned champions.

Tamara Lawrence, from organisers MLE Pyrotechnics, said: “Ragley Hall is a fantastic venue for us, it’s beautiful and it’s central, we had a large attendance, it seems to go up every year.

“Each display is fully choreographed to music, which makes them very special. People were invited to turn up from 4pm, bring a picnic and relax before the fireworks started at 9pm.

“The standard of displays was brilliant, it’s a very prestigious competition in the UK and we’re looking forward to coming back to Ragley Hall next year.”
