Do parish councils have to have additional public liability insurance to hold a firework display and bonfire?

It would certainly be advisable.  If the parish council organises an event, then there is a liability to the public.  Without insurance, in the unfortunate event of a personal injury claim, I'd imagine the council would have little option other than to levy a substantial precept in order to meet the claim.
