1.We wait a year or so and start saving money. This wouldn't pay for everything but will cover most of the costs.
2. Someone could take out a loan from the bank for 10K then every month, everybody interested could send the person who took out the loan some money, say ?10-?20. If there are 25 people and they send ?15 pound, that works out to be ?375 which is about the correct amount that would have to be payed. About the only trouble is getting the loan from the bank as "I want to make a fireworks factory" doesn't sound very good.
We will have to see about the price of everything as putting on displays or showing people how fireworks are made and work (a family day out if you will) could bring in some cash.
As for locality, I will try and make a map and put a mark were everybody lives and upload it so everybody can see. If it is somewhere that someone cant get to (i.e age), then they could get a train to the closest station to the factory and I am sure someone will be willing to collect them and we could have weekends there and every weekend, everybody could chip in ?10 to pay for the materials and running costs.
Just imagine 20+ ball mills, all diffrent designs, going at the same time.
And a question. When this place is up and running (I hope), are the people without the explosive licences (what ever they are called) be allowed to make BP and rockets etc or will someone else have to do it for them?
