Selling fireworks

It is illegal:

  • to sell fireworks or sparklers to anyone under 18 
  • for anyone under 18 to possess fireworks in a public place  (caps, cracker snaps, indoor fireworks, novelty matches, party poppers, sparklers, serpents and throwdowns are exluded from this)

If you plan to sell fireworks you must have a storage licence from us.

If you plan to sell fireworks all year round you must also obtain an all-year sales licence from us.
