If you're planning to celebrate Bonfire Night, we've rounded up the best cheap fireworks deals from participating major UK supermarkets including Tesco, Asda, Morrisons and Aldi.
Bonfire Night 2021 has arrived, and many shoppers will be on the hunt for some last-minute cheap fireworks deals to mark the occasion.
Supermarkets are a popular option for many as, not only are they everywhere, but they also have some pretty decent fireworks offers.
We've rounded up the best deals from Tesco, Asda, Aldi and more so you can pick up your supplies for less.
A quick introduction to fireworks
Fireworks are great fun, but all these different names can be confusing. We’ve given you a quick rundown of the most popular types of fireworks.
Cake: A cake is a multi-shot firework that has its effects in tubes, so they are aligned horizontally, so you’d have tubes side-by-side, rather than stacked on top of each other.
(Roman) candle: A firework with its effects packed in a cardboard tube, as opposed to the cake’s horizontal make-up.
Finale: Fireworks which are kept for the end and are noisier than the others.
Fountain: A static firework that creates a fountain effect and a crackly sound when ignited.
Mine: All of the elements of the firework are lit at the same time and shoot upward from a card tube.
Rocket: A firework that takes off and displays its effects in the air.
Wheel: Also, known as the Catherine Wheel, these fireworks spin quickly to create a wheel of sparks.
