Fireworks FAQ

Currently not. We are an online order and delivery/collection service only. But watch this space in future!

We’ve got a fantastic selection of rockets, roman candles, ready-made display packs – in fact, everything you need to put on a safe and spectacular show. The best fireworks are right here for you! Even if you decide not to buy from us, always use a reputable supplier that is licensed to sell fireworks all year round.

If the weather is inclement, we recommend using plastic bags or clingfilm to protect your fireworks from the wet – especially if you are setting up sometime before firing. Cakes, fountains and roman candles will easily fire through a layer of plastic, but we recommend uncovering wheels and rockets before you fire them.

It is illegal to set fireworks off or throw them in a public place such as a park or street. You MUST have the land-owner’s permission to set fireworks off.

Currently by law in the UK, it is illegal to set off fireworks between the hours of 11pm and 7am. There are certain exceptions to this;

Bonfire night you can set your fireworks off until midnight

Chinese New Year, Diwali and New Year’s Eve you can set your fireworks off until 1am.

This depends on what fireworks you are buying. F1 fireworks are designed for use in close proximity (indoors) and includes our Indoor Fireworks. F2 fireworks are labelled for viewing at 8m or 15m depending on the effects and the power. F3 fireworks are much more powerful and as such are labelled for viewing at 25m.

Legally, no. BUT we do wholeheartedly recommend that you let your neighbours know you’re having fireworks (especially outside of the Nov 5th season) and especially those with pets or young children. If you live near to fields with horses or cattle, then out of courtesy you should let the owners know. Other people you should think about letting know are the local police station, fire brigade and coastguard where necessary.

Your fireworks will arrive in strong, sturdy packaging. Check your order when it arrives but put the fireworks back into the boxes that they came in. This will help protect them. Store them in a dry, cool place away from and damp and away from all sources of ignition.

You have to be at least 18 years of age to buy fireworks. It is illegal to possess fireworks in the UK if you are aged under 18.

You can from lovefireworks.co.uk! Suppliers selling fireworks all year round have a special licence allowing to do so.
