Family Local Fireworks Displays

Not sure whether to stay in or go out to an organised display?

Listed below are some of the best local options across this weekend and beyond.

As locals, who have grown up and lived in South London all our lives, these in our opinion are the best displays for families and are either free or inexpensive! Whatever you decide, have fun, stay safe and remember the Fireworks Code.

Local Fireworks displays

Fireworks Code
Keep fireworks in a closed box
Follow the instructions on each firework
Light all fireworks at arm’s length
Stand well back
Never go back to a lit firework
Never put fireworks in your pocket
Never throw fireworks
Keep Pets indoor

And for Sparklers…
Always supervise children with sparklers.
Teach them to hold the sparkler at arm’s length, but not near anyone else
Sparklers are not for the under 5s. They will be labelled as such and it is your responsibility.
Have a container of water handy, big enough for the spent sparkler. Dump the sparkler in it as soon as it goes out.
