Fireworks are often associated with a memorable or landmark event. Of course, there's Bonfire Night, where fireworks represent the ill-fated attempt of Guy Fawkes to blow up Parliament. We also welcome in the New Year with cacophonous explosions of Catherine wheels, and our American cousins over the pond tend to have spectacular exhibitions to celebrate Independence Day.
However, fireworks don’t have to be confined to certain times of the year; after all, you can buy Easter eggs in December now! True, by law you can only purchase fireworks from registered sellers (such as supermarkets and corner shops) on certain dates. These include 15th October to 10th November, 26th December to 31st December and the three days before Diwali and Chinese New Year.
However, the pyromaniacs among you will be delighted to hear that, throughout the rest of the year, fireworks are available to buy, legally, from licensed shops. So, whether you want to liven up your Auntie Aggie’s birthday tea with a few sparklers, or you wish to make your annual summer BBQ a bash to remember, establishments such as the Fireworks Shop [http://www.fireworksshop.uk.com/] have got you covered! Impress your friends with mini displays from the comfort of your back garden, and inspire your Instagram followers with jealousy by writing your name in the air with a sparkler.
Amid all your excitement, it’s important to remember that, just because you can buy fireworks all year round, it doesn’t mean you don’t have to abide by safety regulations. Ensure you follow all instructions and bear in mind that punishments for illegal use are severe; you can be fined or even imprisoned for selling or using fireworks illegally. You could also be subject to an on-the-spot fine of £90.
For all your spectacular and explosive needs, the Fireworks Shop can help. Whether online or in-store, we stock literally hundreds of rockets, fountains, Catherine wheels and sparklers to make your celebration go off with a bang! Best of all, we’re open and licensed to sell all year round, so you don’t have to wait until the cold depths of autumn to spark up!
