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

Door tickets are cash only and subject to capacity and gender balance. ~ FAQ ~ What is Tantra Yoga? Tantra is thousands of years old and has become a buzzword, which unfortunately has some misleading definitions. Translated from Sanskrit, it means "weaving," which we have come to understand as oneness. Bringing oneness to yourself and consciousness to what you do. Exercises involving breathing and meditation are a part of Tantra and are designed to bring you into a state of being more present. And who doesn't want to be more present, right? What is a Puja? A Puja is an intentional ceremony. Translated from Sanskrit it means reverence, honor, an offering. It is a ritual designed to open our hearts and allow us to see the inner beauty within ourselves and all beings. It invites us into the elegant dance of masculine and feminine in a warm space of oneness and connection--what a great way to start your first date! What does it look like? Participants form two circles facing each other. The men form the outside circle and the women form the inside, with each woman facing a man. Each pair then share a meaningful exchange through a directed exercise (a Puja “station”), which can be for a few seconds or a few minutes. Then they put their hands together in Namaste, thank each other and--like a speed date--rotate to the next person. The ceremony ends when everyone has rotated a full circle. What are some of the exercises? We'll do connection exercises: breathing, meditation, light partner yoga, speaking a vulnerability, eye-gazing, dance, conscious touch (holding hands, hands on heart)… things that go a bit beyond the obligatory “what do you do/where are you from.” And you're always invited to go as deep as you choose. What if I don't feel comfortable doing the exercises? Thanks for asking! We take consent very seriously and have a zero tolerance policy for any inappropriate behavior--which thankfully we have never needed to enforce. While the exercises are straightforward and fun, you are always 100% at choice for how you wish to participate. If you find an exercise that doesn't work for you, then--just like in yoga--you always have the option to modify, or completely opt out. Everyone is encouraged to participate at their own comfort level, and our facilitators go over what that looks like at the beginning, so everyone is clear before we begin. More questions?
