Bressingham Fire Rally

 Fire is one of the fundamental elements that keeps life alive at Bressingham, along with water and coal its one of the vital elements that keeps the trains in steam.

Bressingham has also had a long association with the Fire Service and for many years was the home of some of the Norfolk Historical Fire collection and hosted through the 1980’s and 90’s a combined Fire Rally.

For any budding Fireman there will be the chance to climb inside both the uniform and vehicles as well as seeing what your aim is like whilst having a go with a Fire hose – it’s harder than you think!
