London History Day – celebrating our city’s resilience

27/05/2020 14:58

Sunday 31 May is London History Day, which this year has a theme of resilience. We’ll be marking the occasion with the release of a fascinating new video.

Watch our London History Day video from 11am on Sunday

Hosted by our Museum curators, the video looks at the resilience displayed by the fire service during the Second World War, and draws parallels with the work the Brigade is carrying out today in the effort against the Coronavirus pandemic.

London Fire Brigade Curator Jane Stern said:

“We are thrilled that we can still virtually participate in this year’s London History Day and be part of an event celebrating the strength and courage of London.”

Assistant Curator Elena Lewendon added:

“Our video draws upon the Brigade’s amazing photography archive and really shows how people come together in times of adversity.”

Where to watch

You can watch the video from 11am on Sunday onwards, right here on this webpage, and also on our Facebook page and YouTube channel.
