Hi, I know its really early, but I am planning on holding a fireworks party this New Years Eve (or New Years day). But I was just wondering if anyone knew if or infact which shops may sell them. I know all year shops will be selling them, but there aint many near us. So, I can't remember seeing any seasonal shops for new year last year, but I saw that Asda were selling a small range (I want to avoid at all costs!)

So, anyway, does anyone know if normally there is any seasonal shops, or if the likes of Aldi etc sell them. Thanks.


Oh one last thing, there is a all year fireworks store in Prescot near us called PJM Fireworks, wouldnt know weather to go and check out that shop nearer the time, never really heard from anyone whos been there.

Yeah, New Years Eve is coming up soon! I don't tend to do much for it myself. Supermarkets and the like MIGHT be selling firework, but it depends possibly on what they have leftover- I don't know, to be honest.
OK, interest in fireworks to be resumed in the spring. It usually is. ;)

60 for a Jabberwocky?

Sorry but I think I'd sooner a 200 mile drive up to Epic.

yes, because the 200 miles wouldn't be used up in fuel costs :)

Only worth it if buying another, would cost me 40 quid to do that amount of miles, I'm glad I live nearer.

PS: If planning to buy any Brother fireworks, ring Epic in advance.

There are (were) plenty of places selling Brothers pieces around the midlands/derbyshire/southyorkshire, rather than travelling to Epic :)

With what I want to buy from Epic it would still save me money than going to a more local store. Budget for next year is going to be around 200.

Alexander, I'm not really sure how relevant Epic is to this thread- I'm not knocking you- its just that there have been a lot of Epic dominated threads recently- After a while it just becomes a case of people saying the same stuff!

I would really hope the supermarkets don't. As they are the real sources of fireworks that are used to give our interest a bad name.

That's quite a broad brush statement - can you qualify it further?

It could be the case that NY=Beer+Fireworks=Idiots having accidents or misusing them......Fireworks then beer :)

If someone is having a NY eve party, then have a designated firer
