Firework Displays in Dorset 2015

Remember, remember!
The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot;
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!

This year there are many well organised firework displays around the county, many with music and other attractions to keep the whole family entertained for the whole evening.

We would ask guests, who wish to enjoy fireworks, to attend an organised event as there are many thatched cottages that adorn our beautiful county, a stray firework could lead to disaster. Be safe and enjoy one of the many well organised events:

This list is not a complete list and there will be other local events being held which are advertised locally.

It is illegal to let fireworks off in the street or a public place. You should only let fireworks off on private land such as your garden or on land where you have the landowner’s permission. It is UKFR’s understanding this means it is also illegal to let fireworks off on the beach (not to mention having the potential for fireworks to be mistaken for distress flares).

Note: Prices are a guide only and may change without notice.
