A chance to meet Fireman Sam will be amongst the highlights of a weekend dedicated to firefighting and fire engines at Bressingham Steam Museum.

The Fire Engine Rally on July 28 and 29 will feature fire appliances dating back to the days of steam in the 19th Century right up to the present day.

The special weekend at the south Norfolk museum has been organised in conjunction with Norfolk Fire Museum who have arranged for a wide variety of fire engines to attend for visitors to interact with.

Amongst a host of activities on both days there will be live demonstrations from fire crews and opportunities to squirt water from a fire engine hose.

Popular CBBC character Fireman Sam will be making appearances at intervals on the Sunday. The museum, gardens and steam rides will all be open and operating as usual. For more details visit
