Seven fireworks companies battled it out over three nights to be crowned champions - with Pyrotex Fireworx coming out on top after wowing audiences with a spectacular display.
The event takes place in the resort's Kings Gardens and according to event organiser Sarah Carter from Sefton Council, the event provides a great boost for local tourism businesses who can capitalise on the extra visitors who attend Southport to watch the championships.
