Exhibitor: The Old Fire Station, Leeds

Screening: The Firefighters’ Story: 100 Years of the Fire Brigades Union

Tell us about your organisation

We are a new community hub in East Leeds in a renovated 1930s fire station.

Tell us about your Scalarama event this year

The Fire Brigade Union have a new film about their history and approached us to see if they could use our venue as obviously it’s a perfect location for them!

Tell us what Scalarama means to you

It’s a brilliant festival to be part of. I love the way the films are bing shown in different venues all over Leeds.

Why should people come to your event?

The film showing is a really interesting insight into the Fire Brigade and we also have an open day with heritage tours around the building. Our cafe is open and there is also a trailer with a pop up museum about the Fire Brigade and its history. There is also a chance to meet some of the ex firefighters who worked here and a plaque being unveiled to commemorate a fire fighter from the station who died in WW2.

The Old Fire Station screen The Firefighters’ Story Saturday 15/09 at The Old Fire Station, Leeds.
