The best firework makers from three different countries will demonstrated their stuning displays over alternate Saturdays on September 17, October 1 and October 15 on the beach in front of Blackpool Tower.

Coun Lynn Williams, leader of Blackpool Council, said: “These are free family events that are hugely popular with residents and visitors alike.

“Moving the displays from Fridays to Saturdays proved hugely successful last year, giving people more time to come into the centre of Blackpool during the daytime and enjoy some of the many other attractions on offer before watching the firework displays.
