Frequently Asked Questions

WHY BUY YOUR SELF FIRE FIREWORKS FROM US?

ARE FIREWORKS LEGAL TO PRIVATE CITIZENS IN THE UK?

CAN YOU SET OFF FIREWORKS IN YOUR GARDEN OR BACKYARD?

Yes, you can. Under the law, you must have permission of the land owner to let off fireworks. So if it is your property you can set off your own fireworks in your own garden or backyard.

You must not light fireworks between 11pm and 7am. With the exception of special holidays, such as Bonfire Night/Guy Fawkes (5th November) where the limit is midnight. For Diwali, Chinese New Year and New Year's Eve the limit is 1am. So for a private birthday celebration outside these special event times, your latest time limit is 11pm for example.
