Using fireworks

Throwing or setting off fireworks in the street is an offence.

It is an offence for anyone under 18 years of age to possess any large fireworks in a public place. It is an offence for anyone except professionals from possessing display fireworks.

The use of fireworks is prohibited between the hours of 11pm until 7am with the exception of the following days:

  • Chinese New Year 1am
  • Diwali 1am
  • New Year’s Eve 1am
  • 5 November Midnight

These restrictions are enforced by the Metropolitan Police, not by us.
