• Do you have a shop that I can visit?Glenn Plume
Yes, we do! The Love Fireworks shop is at 92A London Road, Sandy, Beds. SG19 1DW. We are off the A1 southbound just before the Sandy roundabout. We have plenty of on-site parking and you're sure of a warm welcome. The shop is seasonal and is only open at certain times of the year. We open from the 15th October until the 10th November and again from 27th December until the 31st December for New Year's Eve fireworks. Although the shop is closed at other times of the year you can order online 365 days a year and collect from the shop all year round with enough notice - although payment must be made online.
• What are the best fireworks to buy?Glenn Plume
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.
• What if it rains?Glenn Plume
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.
• Can I set my fireworks off anywhere?Glenn Plume
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.

• How much room do I need to set off fireworks safely?Glenn Plume
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.
• Do I need to notify anyone that I am having a display?Glenn Plume
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.
• How should I store my fireworks when then arrive?Glenn Plume
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.
• How old do I have to be to buy fireworks?Glenn Plume
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.
• Can I buy fireworks all year round?Glenn Plume
You can from lovefireworks.co.uk! Suppliers selling fireworks all year round have a special licence allowing to do so.
