Running and organising a large event including fireworks and bonfires

If you are running a large event these require more planning and organisation. This ‘Can do’ guide may be helpful for those planning a more organised voluntary or community event.

Both the Health and Safety Executive and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills have produced helpful guidance on how to organise and run a safe and successful firework display, some of which may be useful for smaller events:

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents has created a website with firework safety tips.
