About the Event

The 2019 Bonfire Societies Firework Championships will be held at Wiston Park, Steyning, BN44 3DZ.

The event is held on the 10th August.

There are 3 Bonfire Societies that will compete to be crowned the 2019 Bonfire Societies Firework Champion. The three shows will be followed by a display from Phoenix Fireworks while the judging happens. The shows will be judged by a panel of professional judges and an audience vote, with 50% of the score coming from each.

The shows will be judged on the use of material, rhythm of display, use of colour and effects, overall artistic impression and compliance to the rules.

There will be family entertainment, a fun fair and food and drink stalls available on the site.

The Bonfire Societies Firework Championship is run by Phoenix Fireworks.
