Fireworks & Bonfire Safety – A guide to a safer event

Bonfire night can be great fun for all the family but it is important that you celebrate safely with fireworks.

Around this time every year there are hundreds of injuries, the majority of those injuries are children either playing with sparklers or fireworks.

Many of these injuries occur at private parties so we strongly urge everyone to take great care this bonfire night and recommend that you visit an organised event, such as the Round Table Display in Cirencester.

If you are having a display at home please make sure you follow the tips below. It’s a fact that many accidents are caused by carelessness. Figures show that more children than adults get hurt by fireworks.
