Enjoy The Fireworks in Upper Rissington

The best way to enjoy fireworks is to visit an organized display.

Upper Rissington Social Committee is holding a firework display on Saturday 9th November.

Fireworks at 6:30pm. Gates open from 5:45pm.

Please note that there is no bonfire this year.

If you are thinking of holding a private garden  display then please heed the advice from Trading Standards:

Fireworks are by their very nature a dangerous product. After all, carrying a pack of explosives next to a bonfire in the dark isn’t something we do every day. There are some things you can do to make sure you have a safe night.

Always make sure that you always buy from a reputable seller. They must be licensed and store them safely. You won’t find a reputable seller on a social media site with pictures of fireworks in their kitchen! Please report to Trading Standards if you see this online.

All consumer fireworks must have the CE mark, if it doesn’t then please don’t use it. Whilst it may be tempting to use high category display fireworks, these are not suitable for garden displays and must only be handled by professionals.

Don’t forget fireworks must not be let off between 11pm and 7am subject to limited exemptions on specific dates (5th November the deadline is midnight). It’s also polite to warn your neighbours.
