World-famous Kimbolton Fireworks has won yet another award - this time for a choreographed fireworks sequence set to modern, contemporary and classical music.

The firm competed against seven different nations to win the sixth International Firework Festival held in Samobor in Croatia.

The four day festival was hosted by Mirovec Pirotehnika the leading firework company in Croatia and featured displays from companies in Lithuania and Slovakia.

Kimbolton's award winning 10-minute display was set to music and used their own manufactured material and fireworks from all over the world.

Simon Page, one of the directors of Kimbolton Fireworks, said: "We're thrilled to have won this competition. We use competitions as an opportunity to be as innovative as possible with lights, colours and music and to show people from all over the world what Kimbolton Fireworks are really capable of."

It took a team of four just one week to devise the winning sequence.
