The UK has a steeped history of firework use, with fireworks being used to celebrate events, religious festivals and national celebrations for hundreds of years.

Today, millions of fireworks are sold for public use each year in the UK and the quality and innovation of design continues to provide more spectacular yet safer fireworks each year.

With this in mind the UK Firework Alliance in association with the UKFR bring you Firework Awards UK - an annual celebration of retail fireworks, showcasing the best of the best, with the winners chosen by the general public. 


Our annual awards begin when members of the UKFR (UK Firework Review) community nominate eligible fireworks in each category.


UKFR members are a mix of professional display operators, community event organisers, retail firework enthusiasts and firework historians who are experts in consumer fireworks. These nominations are then shortlisted and added to a public voting form. 

This is not just another Facebook popularity contest - nominations genuinely represent the best of the best retail fireworks currently available to the public. 

When the results are announced each August, the main importer of the winning fireworks will receive an award certificate and all winners will feature on this website. 

Follow the UK Firework Alliance Facebook page for updates and announcements. We will add more details here as we get closer to launch in June.
