Buying Fireworks Guides

Everything you need to know about buying fireworks and getting the best deal.

Buying Fireworks

In these sections I’ll explain how to buy your fireworks and where from. Starting with the General Help & Advice section which covers consumer fireworks and has some tips on getting the best deals on your fireworks and saving you some money. Those who prefer to have their fireworks delivered can also read the Mail Order Fireworks page for further advice.

Looking for a local, specialist retail fireworks shop that’s open all year round? Try my handy Firework Shops Map.

If you are wanting to book a professional team, for example if you are getting married, then have a read of the Buying Wedding & Professional Fireworks Displays article.

If you’re unsure what type of fireworks you need then my DIY or Professional Fireworks? guide will assist, and if you’re a complete beginner either to fireworks or to this site, have a look at my Beginners Start Here! guide.

If you’re looking for firing systems or fuse then the Buying Firing Systems & Fuse page has further advice and some suggested suppliers.

But wait! Doesn't UKFR sell fireworks?

It does come as a shock to some readers to find that I neither sell fireworks nor work on commission. Yes I really do go to all this effort on UKFR because fireworks is my passion and it has been this way since I started in 1999. I made a decision early on to concentrate on providing information – for free – to UK consumers rather than selling products. I am a completely independent concern and not owned or part-owned by any fireworks retailer.
