Then and now – a fun packed day for all ages! Be transported back to the Great Fire of London then catapult into the present; enjoy storytelling, make and take activities, fire safety talks and demos.
London Fire Brigade pop-up museum is hosting a one day special event as part of London History Day for visitors of all ages to come and explore our history. Whilst our new museum is redeveloped, our pop-up museum is situated in London Fire Brigade’s (LFB) former vehicle workshop, where fire engines were built and serviced since the 1930s. As well as our temporary exhibition about the history of LFB in Lambeth, this special event will chart LFB’s history from the Great Fire of London to the present day. Visitors of all ages will be able to watch storytelling performances that will transport them back to 1666, take part in arts and crafts activities all about the Great Fire of London and dress up in historic and current LFB uniforms.
Fire safety advisors and LFB’s education officers will be on hand to provide the latest fire safety advice, showing how hard London Fire Brigade works to stop the Great Fire of London from happening again.
The day will start at 10am and will finish at 3pm, with regular performances, activities and talks throughout the day.
