42 new products later, and still some more to add, we're just about done with our range for 2014.
Next to follow will be our specials and value packs that we put together.
The new range of CE fireworks are really something else and we can't wait to get our hands on them.
It's looking like a great year to be buying fireworks and of course you should only buy from a proper firework retailer, where you're guranteed the best in retail fireworks at great prices.
We spend all year looking at fireworks from various suppliers and we only buy products that we feel offer you, the customer, a truly fantastic product at the right price. We don't sell beans, or coffee, we sell fireworks, all year round. So we know what we're talking about. Whether it's a small garden selection box, to a big display we've the products and know how to make it a truly great night.
Go into one of your supermarkets or a pop-up shop and ask for advice on safety, effects, products, display ideas... you will see a strange vacant look appear and followed by lots of pointing at boxes, or "Dave" the guy who knows all about it's his day off....
Not here. We've been doing this for so long we can advise on ALL aspects of your display, help with products, safety issues, advise on effects and offer the BEST value fireworks. To us it's not a "BOX" that sells for a couple of weeks a year, this is what we do. So for the best experience go to a Firework Shop (ideally this one) and you'll see why we blow our own trumpet and most importantly why we sell fireworks that deliver on effects and price.
New CE regulations
2014 will be seeing an upheaval in legislation regarding safety distances on fireworks. New CE regulations are allowing fireworks that would normally have been an easy 25m display safety distance, now classified as CE CAT 2 8m. While this is ideal for those of you with smaller gardens, the bursts on some of these are big and so on some of the fireworks we've added our recommendation on our safety distance icon for double the safety distance. This is ONLY our recommendation based on years of firework sales and obviously with your safety in mind.
Celebrating 10 years in business

Price match and Product Enquiry
We try our best to ensure that our prices are competative with other online retailers. However if you come across a firework we sell and it has a Price Match link, we'll do our best to match the price you've seen elsewhere. As with everything there are certain conditions to this, they are;
We will not price match any product on Ebay. We won't price match a product on sale or clearance. The comparison product must be in stock on the relevant website. Where a line is cheaper, we'll also look at the shipping costs as some companies reduce the item cost, but increase the shipping charges.
It is a legal requirement that you must be over the age of 18 to purchase fireworks or possess them in a public place.
For orders placed via the internet, fireworks MUST be signed for by someone over the age of 18, failure to do this will result in a refused delivery.
For callers into our shop, we adopt the "under 21"rule and if in doubt we will require in the form of Driving License or Passport only.
The two cunning disguises of the two lads in the photo didn't fool us.... wonder why????
