The competitors at the 2019 Blackpool World Fireworks Championship are from Estonia, Canada and Ukraine and will be showing their style in displays on each Friday evening in September:

The fireworks are launched from North Pier, which is closed to the public for the duration, and the best viewing point is Tower Festval Headland with the Irish sea providing an awesome backdrop to the best fireworks diplays that I have seen. There is plenty of room for all, but large crowds can be expected when the weather is good so arriving early may be a good bet.
