Performing: NSW Police Band Brass Quintet

Formed in 1869 after a terrible fire gutted the Nelson Bros. warehouse on Byng Street, the Orange Volunteer Fire Brigade – today known as Orange 412 – has a long tradition of serving the community and saving lives. Join us for a hands-on exploration of the fascinating history of our local fire brigade. This family-friendly exhibition includes kids’ dress-ups, playful storytelling, and an interactive fire truck, alongside stunning images and historical firefighting equipment. Musical performances will entice visitors to connect and to interact with the exhibition, moving freely between the special items.
