Fireworks and the Law FAQ
If I buy fireworks out of season, when can I use them?
If you are over 18 then it is perfectly legal to buy and use fireworks at any time of the year but please note that it is an offence to let fireworks off during night hours (11pm to 7am), except on Bonfire Night (midnight), Diwali, New Year and Chinese New Year (1am).

I have seen youth's letting of fireworks, what can I do?
