Fireworks are what UKFR is all about: It is the UK’s biggest and best website on the subject! This article runs through the main parts of the website and is intended to help first time visitors to UKFR get the most from it.
Fireworks help and advice
An extensive part of this website is given over to helping beginners. If you are a complete novice and are even unsure of what the different terms mean (cakes, candles and so on), start by clicking on “Beginner’s Guides” in the menu at the top of the screen, then click on “Types of fireworks” and select the firework types for more information.
That section also includes a handy article about the difference between DIY (do it yourself, also known as consumer fireworks) and professional services.
When you are ready to buy, whether it’s consumer or professional, the buying guide has some tips and advice, before you head over to the buy fireworks page which lists site sponsors. Please give these companies your support, find out why.
You can also narrow down the supplier list into specialist areas. Just select the “Buy Fireworks” option in the main menu at the top and pick from the area required, such as Mail Order, Professional and Wedding Fireworks. For those in the trade, try Category 4 Fireworks, Wholesale Fireworks and Racks and Equipment.
The UKFR Forum has become the biggest of its kind in the UK. Everyone is welcome from total beginners to seasoned professionals. It’s free to register and join (UK only, aged 18 years or older). Share your experiences, ask questions, talk shop, or network with other retailers or firers.
Articles and Features
The articles section contains material which is published by UKFR on an ongoing basis. These would be articles about fireworks displays, products, photography and much more. When the site was updated in 2011, all the old standalone features were also brought over and are well worth a look.
And much more
You will probably have noticed that the number of sections mentioned in this article are far less than the number of options available in the menus above. So do please explore this website, it is literally crammed full of information, guides and goodies as you would expect from a site that has been going since 1999!
