Storage and sale of explosives and fireworks

We have produced a guide for organisers of fireworks displays to help make them safe.

It covers most types of displays, including: displays where the fireworks are set off by the organisers. These events are often put on by organisations like school parent/teacher associations, sports clubs and by public houses for their customers.

  • Organised firework display
    (these events are often put on by organisations like school parent/teacher associations, sports clubs and by public houses for their customers).
     
  • Larger display
    (the guide also covers the larger displays organised by voluntary organisations like the Round Table where professional display operators are used).

If you are having a firework party for family, friends and neighbours, generally you should only need to follow the instructions supplied with the fireworks. However, you may find the safety advice in this guide useful.

Please bear in mind that this is only a guide, not a definitive document.
