Laws Governing the Sale possession and use of fireworks
The ban on fireworks between 2300 and 0700 is part of a range of measures introduced by the government to clamp down on anti-social behaviour, as detailed in the Fireworks Regulations 2004.
The measures also make it illegal for anyone under 18 to carry fireworks in public places and shops cannot sell fireworks louder than 120 decibels under the new laws.
The exceptions are:
- New Year displays,
- Chinese New Year,
- Diwali Celebrations
