If it's good enough for Beijing, it's good enough for Audlem! 

We are now days away from one of the biggest events in Audlem- the village's enviable 'Bonfire & Fireworks Display'.

But what makes this show so special and draws audiences in from near and far? 

Music choice and choreography began back in March and the picking, fusing and preparation of the show takes Blitz Fireworks about 6 weeks.

The show will be set to music featuring a variety of songs of different genres and times perfectly synced to the drama of the fireworks, their burst and impact. 

This year sees a new sound provider and for the first time the industry renowned Funktion One sound system will be used at Audlem. This calibre of sound provision is usually found at major concerts or festivals such as Glastonbury.

#Beijing to Audlem
The show is fired electronically via a laptop with state of the art world renowned 'fire-by-wire' firing system and it is the only digital firing system made and manufactured here in the UK.

It was used at the Beijing Olympics, and has been used to fire all the shows at Audlem. 

The lucky winner (to be announced) from Audlem St James' school's Bonfire Art Competition will press the button to start the display featuring hundreds of single shot comets, straight firing cakes, fan cakes and z cakes, mines, candles and aerial shells. 

Tickets are on sale now for £4 from Audlem Post Office, Nantwich TIC or Blitz in Crewe.  Gate price £5. Under 5s are Free. No sparklers or dogs please.

Gates open 4pm, Bonfire lighting 6.30pm, Fireworks 7pm- all timings are approximate. Don't miss this spectacular show!
