SAFETY IS OF PARAMOUNT IMPORTANCE TO FIREWORKS ARCADE AND ALL OUR FIREWORKS ARE DELIVERED WITH A DETAILED DISPLAY INSTRUCTIONS LEAFLET (copy available on request).

DTI Guidance

  • The DTI publishes comprehensive fireworks safety information at www.dti.gov.uk/fireworks.
  • The DTI also provides full details on the sale and use of fireworks, Fireworks Regulations 2004 and the Fireworks Act 2003.

The DTI Firework Code is as follows

  • Only buy fireworks marked (BS7114: Part 2: 1988).
  • Don’t drink alcohol if setting off fireworks.
  • Keep fireworks in a closed box.
  • Follow the instructions on each firework.
  • Light at arm's length, using a taper.
  • Stand well back
  • Never go near a firework that has been lit. Even if it hasn't gone off, it could still explode.
  • Never put fireworks in your pocket or throw them.
  • Always supervise children around fireworks. 
  • Light sparklers one at a time and wear gloves.
  • Never give sparklers to a child under five.
  • Keep pets indoors.

Fireworks are available all year round and are used for weddings, anniversaries, parties as well as the traditional bonfire night and New Years Eve. Advice is always on hand from Fireworks Arcade on any safety issues.
