Product details

All the fireworks on sale conform to the B.S. standard 7114, we urge you not to be tempted to buy street fireworks from un registered suppliers, not just because they usually underperform, but, they may not have been tested in this Country (they don’t believe it or not have to be!!!) and could be highly dangerous, fireworks are and can be dangerous in the wrong hands, so please enjoy your family fireworks with your family, safely, booze and fireworks really is not a good idea.
