The government has launched a curriculum-linked education
campaign about new laws on fireworks, and firework safety.
Under antisocial behaviour laws there is a curfew from 11pm to
7am on firework use, except on 5 November when it is one hour
Under-18s are forbidden to buy or possess fireworks in public,
and many types of fireworks – such as bangers – cannot
be sold to the public.
A leaflet aimed at children advises them to Follow Ben for a
Safe Fireworks Night, while other materials are targeted at
schools, retailers, adults and display organisers.
Schools packs for key stages 1, 2 and 3 in English and Welsh
list recent changes to the law around fireworks.
