Raw audio of a fireworks display at Godalming, England. I recorded this event simultaneously with a Zoom H1 and Zoom H4n Pro to compare the quality. Annoyingly, the organizers also blasted music during the event, so the moments of quiet are tainted with distant, though obscured music.

This sound is not in the public domain. Please attribute/credit the sound if you use it. If you would prefer to not have to give attribution, then take a look at the attribution-free license.

An example of how you might credit is by putting this in the description/credits:

Any donations are greatly appreciated! And for more awesome sounds, do please check out my sound libraries or SFX store.

Please comment on where you intend to use the sound, and feel free to post a link to the work where you used it if you want (I enjoy watching/listening to anything you create!)

The sound was recorded using a "H1 Zoom recorder" on 3rd November 2017.

Note: Audio quality is always better when downloaded.

    With the sounds of that girl screaming, this definitely sounds more like an American school than fireworks.
