If you’re planning to put on your own display instead, remember to take great care and follow the firework code.
Keep the fireworks in a closed box and only take out one at a time, following the instructions carefully. Keep naked flames, other than the one you are using to light the firework, out of the way and light them at arm’s length.
Direct fireworks away from the direction of people and never go back to a lit firework.
If you are having a bonfire, do not use highly flammable liquids such as paraffin or petrol to speed it up and always make sure it is completely out before you head to bed at night. You should check for our hedgehog friends underneath before lighting too.
Have a brilliant (and safe) Bonfire Night, with all the toffee apples and parkin that go with it!
