Event planners: Don’t play with fire when organising a fireworks display – new guide released

No longer restricted to Bonfire Night, fireworks displays are now seen throughout the year, on sorts of occasions from birthdays to sporting events. But one of the UK’s premier event planning services warns that far too many event planners are still unaware, or ignoring, basic safety guidelines.

Online corporate and private event planning directory,, has published a guide with essential facts to help event planners get it exactly right when organising a fireworks display.

The full guide, Professional Fireworks Displays For Events In The United Kingdom can be found at in the “Articles” section of the site.

Jon Stebbings, Sales and Marketing Director of Partyoffers and author of the guide explains: “We have a number of fireworks display companies in our directory and while they all follow safety rules very closely, they can be put into difficult situations by customers who haven’t thought through properly the impact of having a fireworks display, in the venue they have chosen.

“We all know how dangerous fireworks can be, but there are so many different types of fireworks around now and they all have different safety requirements. It has never been so complicated, which is why people should always use a professional fireworks display operating company.”

There are four different categories of fireworks and these categories dictate the viewing distance, or space between the public and the fireworks, required.

A good professional fireworks display operating company should always check certain details of the venue with the event planner. For example, it is essential that the venue has good access and space for a ‘safety zone’. There should be a risk assessment of the site carried out before the event takes place and the police, emergency services and even the Civil Aviation Authority may need to be informed.

Jon also warns people to check that the fireworks companies they choose to use are members of either the British Pyrotechnics Association (BPA) or the Explosives Industry Group (EIG). It’s also very important to check that these companies have the correct levels of liability insurance cover. is an online corporate and private events planning resource. The free-to-view directory covers over 300 categories including, entertainers, traditional event services, all kinds of wedding suppliers, venues from A to Z and the most enticing mix of European and ethnic caterers on the web.
