It’s the 150th anniversary of the formation of the London Fire Brigade as we know it today, and this year there will be a number of commemorative events.

Up first is a couple of months where fire stations around London will open their doors to the public.

Expect worthy displays about the value of fire alarms, and more child friendly chances to climb around fire engines and the like.

Maybe a firemans pole in some locations.

Most are open at weekends, with the curious exception of Whitechapel which is open on a weekday.
