What’s The Difference Between Firecrackers and Fireworks?
When it comes to deciding whether to go for firecrackers or fireworks for your display, you can use a combination of both if you like. The main difference between firecrackers and fireworks is fireworks use gunpowder and a range of other chemicals, when they are lit, they create hug lights, colours, sparks, bangs when they reach the sky. Firecrackers are different, they consist of a string of bangers which are linked by a fuse that emits a series of loud bangs when it is lit up.

Usually, you shouldn’t set fireworks and firecrackers off between 11pm and 7am. The only exceptions are Bonfire Night, New Year’s Eve, Diwali, and Chinese New Year, you can blast fireworks until 1am on these occasions.
What does the weather need to be like to set off fireworks and firecrackers UK?
To set off any fireworks and firecrackers, you will need to have dry weather. Some don’t let bad weather affect their displays, whilst others will get more affected by wind, rain, or snow. You can protect fireworks from any rainfall with polythene bags or clingfilm. If you have very strong winds in your area, it might be best to set the fireworks off another day. Don’t light a bonfire if it’s windy and rainy either as it will just go out.
Do I need permission to set off firecrackers in my garden?
There is no need to get permission or a licence to set off firecrackers, they are completely legal to set off in your garden, just make sure you have enough space! Private firework displays with firecrackers have no rules and no formalities need to be followed, so you don’t need to inform anyone (but perhaps your neighbours). 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 isn’t yours, such as a pub garden or in a park, especially if you are charging people to watch.
