For those without specialist knowledge. This new edition reflects the many significant changes in the law since 1995, chiefly relating to the supply, possession, transport, keeping and use of fireworks and how these may affect the organisation and execution of your display.

Examples of the type of display envisaged are those put on by organisations like sports clubs and school parent/teacher associations, by parish councils and by public houses typically attracting some 100 customers/spectators. Common or garden displays for family, friends or neighbours are generally covered by box instructions. Also does not cover displays using Category 4 fireworks. With full documentation of the legal requirements.
