Win tickets to a stunning night of fireworks at Stanford Hall near Rugby on August 3.

Now in its 11th year, three of the UK’s best firework companies compete against each other with a 10 minute firework display choreographed to music followed by a finale display from organisers MLE Pyrotechnics based in Daventry.

The types of fireworks used by the companies are category four - for professional use only - meaning they are the biggest available in the UK.

The event is the only one of its type in the UK where the audience have the chance to vote for the team they liked the most using their mobile phone.

On site at the event, on Saturday August 3, there will be children’s entertainment and music.

Visitors can sit on the grass with picnics or food and drink from the site, or set up table and chairs.

Gates open at Stanford Hall at 5pm. The demonstration starts at 9pm, with the three displays getting underway at 9.30pm.
