London Fire Brigade Pop-up Museum is hosting a one day special event as part of Historic England’s London History Day for visitors of all ages to come and learn about our history. Whilst our new museum is still being developed, 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 complement Historic England’s theme of Loss and Destruction by exploring LFB’s history during the Second World War. Visitors of all ages will be able to watch storytelling performances that will transport them back to September 1940, take part in arts and crafts activities to create a model of London during the Blitz 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. The day will start at 10am and will finish at 3pm, with regular performances, activities and talks throughout the day. Last entry will be at 2.30pm
