Where to find cheap fireworks 2019: best deals at Aldi, Asda, Lidl, Tesco and Morrisons

Here are the best cheap fireworks deals for Bonfire Night from all the major supermarkets.

With Bonfire Night fast approaching, many of us will be on the hunt for some 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 so you can plan where to pick up your supplies for less.

If you're looking specifically for Sainsbury's fireworks, please note the supermarket has announced it will no longer be stocking them.

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 which 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.
