Old Central Fire Station Heritage Weekend

Old Central Fire Station Heritage Weekend

This year we are swinging open the balcony doors of the old Central Fire Station for a rare glimpse of where firefighters relaxed and often slept over 100 years ago. This event is an open weekend, with various heritage themed activities on offer that are ideal for families and children.

From the balcony you will be able to admire the wondrous fig tree and imagine the tales of courtship between the firefighters and nurses once hidden between the leaves. We also have our own volunteers on hand who will share a story or two… but they may be more legend than truth.

Children will get a unique balcony experience with the appearance of Igor the spider who would startle many an innocent passer-by on the footpath below. Plus, they can meet Freddy the Fire Truck and take a ride around the block on an original 1960s Bedford fire appliance.

Were you a victim of Igor? Did you steal a kiss from a firefighter under the old fig tree? We invite you to share your stories with us!
