Do It Yourself Firework Displays

Fireworks at night

For DIY displays that look professional

Whether you're organising a small back garden party or a larger club social event, if you're firing the display yourself, Chorlton Fireworks has the ultimate DIY guide.

With sufficient planning, safe storage of fireworks, and risk assessments, there's no reason why you can't light a small garden fireworks display yourself. You'll also need insurance and training for larger DIY public displays. And whatever the size of your event, you'll be restricted to firing only consumer fireworks from Categories 1, 2, and 3.

Category 4 fireworks can be dangerous in untrained hands. You'll need to hire a professional firework display operator if you want these industrial fireworks in your running order.
