Firework Lovers – Will Your Private Display Be Breaking The Law?
It’s Bonfire Night on Saturday and I’m sure many people are planning small get-togethers with family and friends for a few fireworks, but did you know that as an organiser of these events you will be subject to the 2004 Fireworks Regulations?
The days of just a humble sparkler in the back garden are long gone
Event insurers Arag.co.uk are warning private firework party organisers about the legal responsibilities and risks that garden displays entail ahead of Bonfire Night – and there could be stiff penalties handed out to amateur pyrotechnicians who breach these regulations.
ARAG’s checklist for anyone planning garden displays this weekend is:
• Keep it at home – It has been illegal to set off fireworks “in or into any highway, street, thoroughfare or public place” since the Explosives Act of 1875
