No you don't need a licence for one but trying to get hold of one these days is more or less impossible thanks to all the new laws introduced to make real guns harder to get.
The best thing would be to try your local gunshop (if you have one) and see what they can come up with. There were a few gunshops that would deal over the Internet or would post but again, you'd be hard pushed to find one now. Unless anybody knows different.....

So--you've got a nice new tank
To provide you with some fun
but the problem that you're having
is that---you haven't got a gun.
A gun, that is, that makes a bang
Revolver or automatic
The rules for which you'll find, young sir
Are very autocratic.
Blank firers cause a stir among
our elected, tried and true,
If you've not done the proper thing
You'll be seeing Boys in Blue
So do yourself a favour
Avoid getting in the lurch
Use your small grey cells, my friend
And check the thing marked SEARCH.

Race , if you fit one in your tank , pay particular attention to how the blank firer vents , as if it vents up the barrel , and the barrel has a through bore then you will be breaking the law as its possible to fire a projectile . Make sure that the barrel has at least a cross pin in it .
There was an occasion at a show a few years ago when as i hit the button to shoot the blank firer , a young lad ran infront of the tank i was driving and received a powder burn to his wrist . I was lucky that the incident went no further , i could have been in serious trouble .Since that day i have not used blank firer,s , and prefer to go for the electronic sound .
In my opinion the electronic sound sounds more like the real thing anyway, Nice big " boom "instead of a " crack "
According to the law , cartridges for blank firers , including black powder cartridges are classed as " fireworks " , and as such need to be transported in a " metal " container.
Hope this is of some help
