Why Choose Compound Fireworks?
Compound fireworks are a few fireworks that are linked together so you only have to light them up once, they are convenient. They will give you multiple effects without the hassle of needing to light various fireworks back to back. Generally, compound fireworks have a long duration and will light up the sky for at least a few minutes. They vary from 1 minute to over 4 minutes normally. You will only be able to ignite them once, you can’t reuse them. Our compound fireworks are often loud fireworks as so many will be shooting off into the sky at once.

Compound Fireworks FAQs
What’s a compound firework cake?
Our compound cakes are multiple firework cakes pre-fused together, always on a single board. You will find that one firework compound cake box has several smaller cakes fused together into one. You only need to light the main fuse, which will set off all boxes in turn and make it easier to you to stand back quickly and enjoy the display.
What does the weather need to be like to set off compound fireworks?
Like any other fireworks, to set off compound fireworks you will need dry weather. Some don’t let bad weather affect their displays, whilst others will get more affected by wind and rain. One way to protect your fireworks if it’s raining is with polythene bags or clingfilm. The only time you shouldn’t set the fireworks off is when it’s very windy, they can blow away and cause a fire or damage.
Do I need to ask anyone if I want to set off fireworks in my garden?
There is no need to get permission or a licence to set off fireworks, they are completely legal to set off in your back garden. Private firework displays have no rules and no formalities need to be followed, so you don’t need to inform anyone, some like to warn their neighbours though. Especially, if the firework display is going to be particularly loud and last a while. The only time you would need to get permission to set off fireworks is if you are planning to set them off on property that doesn’t belong to you and if you are charging people to watch.
How far away do I need to be from the fireworks I’m setting off?
At Let’s Party Fireworks, most of our fireworks are category 3, meaning you will need to leave at least 25 meters for viewing. Some fireworks we sell are category 2 and with these it’s recommended to leave a viewing distance of 5 meters, luckily meaning they are suitable for smaller gardens. You will need to be aware of dangerous hazards in your garden, like overhanging trees, long grass or extra narrow gardens. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like any more information about the safety of our fireworks.
