Firework displays in London 2017

Our advice on Bonfire Night is always to attend organised firework displays this. Last year was the busiest Bonfire Night in six years. We attended 500 incidents in 24 hours.

It's always much safer to attend an organised firework display. Take a look at our fireworks display map. It lists free and paid for events taking place across London.

Firework safety

For those of you who have planned to host your own event always:

  • Buy fireworks marked with the British Standard Kitemark BS7114
  • Never drink alcohol if setting off fireworks
  • Keep fireworks in a closed box and always follow the instructions carefully when using them

Our bonfire and fireworks page has further safety information.
