A GALA day to celebrate a Hereford museum's 40th anniversary is to take place this weekend.

Vintage, veteran and classic vehicles will also form part of the celebrations at The Waterworks Museum in Broomy Hill, with a cavalcade through Hereford before lining up in the museum courtyard.

Mayor of Hereford, Len Tawn, will officially open a newly restored Second World War Tangye water pump and Hereford Concert Band will also be performing.

The event takes place on Sunday (July 27) between 1pm and 5pm.

Visitors should wear something red to celebrate the ruby anniversary.
