Plymouth on; Southport off

The following is the news from Southport Council about the British Musical Fireworks Championship

‘Due to the ongoing coronavirus (Covid-19) situation in the UK and the impact that it is having, Sefton Council has been forced to take the difficult decision to cancel the Southport Air Show (12 - 13 September) and the British Musical Fireworks Championship (25 – 27 September). The events will return next year (2021).

Each year these flagship events attract visitors from all over the UK and generate millions of pounds for Sefton’s local economy, supporting local businesses.
Cllr Marion Atkinson, Sefton Council's Labour Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Skills, says, “Every autumn we welcome thousands of people to Southport to enjoy these two major events in the town; the Southport Air Show and the British Musical Fireworks Championship. However, as the latest government guidance on the next stages of its Covid-19 response indicate, it will not be possible or responsible for large-scale events to take place.

“We understand this news will disappoint a lot of people, but we all have to work hard to protect the health and the wellbeing of our communities, and the safety of everyone involved including visitors, exhibitors, traders, staff, contractors, and the many more who contribute and play a part in delivering these much-loved events.  These are the factors at the very forefront of our decision.  We look forward to welcoming everyone again next year.”

The date for the 2021 British Musical Fireworks Championship will take place on 24 - 26 September 2021

But TESA reports about the British Firework Championship at Plymouth:

'We are still currently planning to go ahead with the British Fireworks Championships this August (12/13), subject to Government restrictions being lifted. and that we feel it is safe to do so. We will be reviewing the situation again in June/July
